Save tigers, save our earth!

Tigers have now become a topic of interest and issue all over the world. Their
reducing number has triggered the government authorities to awaken and take observe. The
causes of the fast decrease in the Tiger population are well known both by the government
and common people. The increasing pressure on Tiger habitats due to agriculture,
industrialization and degradation and fragmentation of natural habitats, forests and natural
grasslands are one of the main reasons for the decrease of Tiger population and for that matter
all wildlife in Indonesia. The immediate effect of this is lack of natural food and habitat
causes the wild animals to come out of the forest area. This tends to increase the conflicts
between the humans and animals. The other reason for the population decrease is poaching,
which has been on rise recently.
The poaching problem should be dealt with strictly by the Government of Indonesia
and the concerned State Governments. The Forest Department of Indonesia is severely
understaffed and they do not have the modern weapons and technology to protect the Forest
areas. The laws for the animal protection should be revised.
There is something that we as the typical public too have to do. Creating an awareness
is a first step. And, this start is even more essential when the focus is to preserve the tigers.
Make an effort to develop attention to Save Tigers by developing images, leaflets, ads,
advertising the cause on internet websites and the like. We could even try developing
attention thru fun methods like planning competition concept events. The more we propagate
the gospel, the more persons you will adhere to the cause. Whether or not it is about
collecting equal rights for the incapable or preserving the tigers, developing attention is
incredibly important for all public causes.
Not only is the tiger a beautiful animal but it is also the indicator of the forest's
health. Saving the tiger means we save the forest since the tiger cannot live in places
where trees have vanished and in turn secure food and water for all. If we make sure tigers
live, we will have to make sure that deer, antelope and all other animals that the tiger eats or
its prey base live. To make sure that these herbivores live, we must make sure that all the
trees, grass and other plants that these prey animals need for food are protected. In short, in
this way the whole forest gets saved! Saving the tiger means indirectly saving the forests and
in turn saving the environment that is reeling under global warming due to massive
deforestation. By destroying the tiger's home, we not only harm tigers, but also ourselves.

The tiger thus becomes the symbol for the protection of all species on our earth since it is at
the top of the food-chain. This is why we sometimes call the tiger, an apex predator and an
indicator of our ecosystem's health. In short, saving the tiger means saving the earth.
