A poem on this subject by me:

THE TIGERS' DEMISE

(14 September 1995)

"Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night..."
Thus it once was when Blake wrote
His well-known lines of rhyming note;
But now we hear in sadder tones
That the tiger for its bones
Is killed because some people think
A tonic be found for them to drink

Should we to these contentious bones
Consent and speak in lower tones? -
For when we hear of its demise,
(The tiger with the "burning eyes"),
We try to save...

We try to save it from its fate
Though some may think it be too late!
As for the "cure-all" they extract,
There is no cure, and that's a fact!

La tierra es bella por eso la cubre el cielo con su manto de sol adornado de luna y con estrellas,
Día y noche, confiado en las gentes conscientes, el guardián de las selvas espera del cielo lluvia y viento, pero también tu protección. Por amor a la vida, para impedir que los TIGRES se extingan por nuestra indiferencia y superstición. Por favor firma esta petición.

just been watching some Tiger trails with the organisation Born Free Foundation and people are donating on line but more needs to be done to protect these endangered big Cats and Tigers are often traded for their skin and strange medicines and maximising profits for the elite .

I feel there should be a tourism gap of 3-5 years to save these magnificant animal and to make concious efforts to strengthen the workforce and support staff in jungle and provide the whole project new wind with good intension and money. Honest officials and volunteers to be deployed to support this cause of National Pride and honour.

Man need to stop being so greedy and stop encroaching into the territories of these majestic tigers. These animals need their own habitat if they are to survive. Hunters/ poachers should be shot on site as this is the only way they can be stopped from killing these disappearing beings. Stop buying the skins and parts of these animals.

Gorgeous tigers must be protected.
No more fur wearing for vanity, no more trapping them, no more skinning them alive.
