Sumatran tigers have been hunted and their habitat has been destroyed to a point where they are critically endangered. If we don’t do anything to help them they will become extinct. I want to save the Sumatran tigers from extinction. 

According to www.tigersincrisis.com In recent years Sumatra has seen a great deal of agricultural growth and this has fragmented the tiger’s habitat. Most of the remaining Sumatran tigers now live in five National Parks, two Game Reserves, though around 100 live in an unprotected area that will most likely be lost to agriculture in the near future. Of the eight original subspecies of tigers, three have become extinct within the last 60 years; and there are less than 50 South China tigers left on this planet – few, and possibly none, survive in the wild. This fact proves that change is needed immediately!

Change is needed because if we don’t do anything to save the tigers they will die and go into extinction, the food chain would be drastically affected, So called medicine that tigers parts are made into is actually proven ineffective and is nothing more than a myth.

If we don’t do anything to save the tigers they will die and go into extinction. To completely get rid of any species is horrible and tigers are almost there. There is only around 3000 tigers left in the world when we started with easily over 100,000 that is simply disgusting. They will be extinct before we know it if we don’t change anything. Tigers are a beautiful animal that deserves to live!

If nothing is changed and the tiger is devastatingly put into extinction the food chain would be drastically affected. The tiger is at the top of the food chain and has no real enemy apart from the humans, but if the tiger were to die out the food chain would get screwed as there would be a new top dog and then that animal would overpopulate eating all the animals under them in the food chain making them extinct as well. If one species in a food chain becomes extinct there is a knock-on effect on other species. ... Many of the species which could be affected by the disappearance of tigers are also endangered and already fighting for their own survival. The tiger is at the top of the food chain in all the ecosystems it lives in. As such, it keeps populations of deer, wild boar, sambar and gaur in check. Without the tiger to control them these prey species would expand.

So called medicine that tigers parts are made into is actually proven ineffective and is nothing more than a myth. Tiger, the most fearsome animal, is revered by the Asian people for its strength and bravery. Medications prepared from parts of such animals are useless, scientifically not proven and unethical. Western medical experts tend to discount all claims of any curative power in tiger In spite of their uselessness, there is a great demand for medicine or items like charm, talisman, tiger wine etc., Despite this, in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Vietnam and in Chinatowns across Europe and North America. We must try to destroy the myth by education. 

We need to come together as one to save the Sumatran Tigers. We need more education and more money donated towards reserves.
