TIGERS ARE AWESOME, AND THEY NEED YOUR HELP
This GIF may be cute, but the horrible reality is that there are only 3,200 tigers left in the wild. That’s one tiger for every 2.2 million people. That’s also about 100,000 tigers fewer than were alive 100 years ago.
These majestic animals have roamed this earth for almost two million years, yet humanity has managed to exterminate 97% of them in the last century. The Javan, Caspian, and Bali tiger species have already gone extinct, and now the Sumatran tiger is about to become the next victim.
Poaching, illegal logging, and habitat fragmentation threaten the future of the few tigers that are left. If this doesn’t stop, all wild tigers will have disappeared from this planet in ten years. Ten fucking years, Tumblr.
Luckily, it’s not too late yet. The WWF reckons that with enough funds and effort, it is possible to double the current tiger population by 2020. I say we go for it and try to save these magnificent animals before we lose them forever.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
Donate to charities like the WWF or the IFAWWith your donations, these organisations can fund antipoaching efforts, educate local communities, restore tiger habitats, and create political will to enforce laws that ban tiger products.
Don’t buy products that affect tigers or their habitatsBuy only wood, paper, and coffee products that are produced sustainably. You can recognize these product by certificates like FSC, UTZ, or the Rainforest Alliance. Most importantly: never, ever buy products made from tiger parts, like traditional Chinese medicines that contain tiger bones.
Spread awarenessThe more people become aware of the tiger’s situation, the easier it will be to do something about it. Educate yourself, tell your friends, and reblog this post.
