Global Tiger Day is July 29th, a day to celebrate the strength and magnificence of one of the worlds most beautiful cats. A day to raise awareness for the tigers and for the people around the world to support the conservation efforts being made to save the remaining six species of tigers from extinction.
- Tigers are the largest wild cat in the world
- All six species of tigers are listed by the IUCN as Endangered
- Three of the six remaining species are listed as Critically Endangered
- Tigers are at the top of the food chain with no natural predators, except for humans
- There are more tigers in captivity in the U.S. alone than there are in the wild
Tiger populations are declining because of one thing and that is man. How could a person do this to an animal. An animal that has done nothing wrong. The tigers are not killed in self-defense. The tigers are not killed because they are attacking people. They are killed for their skins, fur, and bones because some cultures actually believe that tigers can provide medicinal healing. Tigers are not medicine.
Tigers are losing the battle because of habitat loss, illegal poaching, tiger-human conflict, and wildlife trade. The belief that tiger parts have medicinal purposes and can cure disease has increased the demand for wildlife trafficking.
It is estimated that there are approximately 300 Sumatran tigers and less than 250 Malayan tigers left in the wild. These numbers are shocking to us.
