Tigers are an endangered species. The tiger is a large, carnivorous, tawny-coloured and
black-striped feline, (Panther Tigris) of Asia, ranging in several subspecies from India and the Malay Peninsula to Siberia. The entire species is endangered, with some subspecies thought to be extinct. There are only about 3,200 left in the wild. We need to prevent tigers from being unnecessarily killed and help preserve them by donating to public and private zoos so the tigers can get the best help that we can give.   

The tigers total body length of up to 3.38m and weight of up to 388.7kgs in the wild and there are 3,062 to 3,948 tigers left, there were 100,000 at the start of the 20th century but over the past 100 years, they have lost 93% of their historic range. The tigers are the largest member of the cat family and the biggest tigers are capable of killing animals over twice their size or even bigger and attack in groups. Around half of tiger cubs don’t live beyond two years of age because of the wildlife n how b it can get for the cub. An average baby cub is weighs in around 4kg. A fact is all tigers are carnivores. The Tiger usually lives in Asia, China, Russia, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.  

We need tigers in the food chain to maintain the balance of numbers in the environment. Not only are tigers hunted, but their wild prey, like deer and wild pigs, have been overhunted by people either for food or for sale.  A depleted prey base means that tigers will often attack livestock to feed themselves and their cubs, thus fuelling human-tiger conflict. We should stop illegal hunting so there’s more food for the tigers.

We don’t want to lose animals that have be around longer than humans and for other generations to learn about them. Securing core areas within tiger sites through effective law enforcement is essential. This is carried out by well-trained park guards to combat poaching and other illegal activities. Boots on the ground is a proven method that deters poachers and helps to truly secure breeding populations of tigers and their prey.

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, samba and gaur in check. Without the tiger to control them these prey, these species would expand. This excessive population would then totally ravage its food source - vegetation. If the vegetation in the jungles was devastated, smaller animals and insects would not survive there either.

I have explain that how tigers are important to our society and how there not as dangerous as you think as well as they go through hard time with deforestation and less of food and poaching. I hope that the information I have giving you will help you to decide what you want to do about the tigers, if you want to help please donate to a tiger foundation so we can help our magnificent creatures.
