TIGERS NEED YOUR HELP
Did you know that 95% of the world’s tigers have been wiped out over the past century and that there are now more captive tigers left in countries such as China and the United States than animals left in the wild?
Because humans encroach on and degrade their habitats and hunt them to supply their body parts to meet the booming demand. Tiger bones are ground up for traditional medicines, the fangs and claws turned into amulets, their skins used as trophies and rugs, and their meat eaten as exotic dishes. Renowned for their mythical power and physical strength, tigers and their body parts are status symbols that command high prices on the black market.
