Happy International Tiger Day!
Today marks a regular date of the year: 29th July 2015, but it also crowns a day for the big cats. Today is subject to the glorious tigers - lets embrace and commend their brilliance and tranquility right here, on planet earth.
These mammals swarm in strength and power, contributing as a community of visual glory and passion. Renowned for their self defence and optic ways of survival, tigers are truly commendable.
These incredible carnivores sure do have an appetite! A hungry tiger can eat as much as 60 pounds (27 kilograms) in one night, though they usually eat less. Insane!
Although this magnificent animals exist on our planet and live with focus, they now face a troubling challenge. In just over 100 years (from 1913), our world has witnessed a drastic deflate of 97% of all tigers!
How can this be!?!?
Once again it's due to our human race. Our fellow people, who crave being selfish and foolish.
A few subjects that slice the population of this wonderful creatures are due to people selling tigers in black markets, as well as local community dependence on forests for fuel wood, food and timber also heightens the risk of tiger attacks (also deforestation).
We need to stop!
There has been a recorded estimate to indicate that only 3200(approx) exist, and a horrifying fact states that tigers may only survive for five more years.
These unique animals need safety.
We as a global population, should be driven to help these helpless mammals - ignorance is no option. #WWF
Please comment down below your thoughts on 'International Tigers Day' and their threat to becoming extinct - I'd love to hear them. :D
Lets celebrate their existence and magnificent ways of being truly astonishing creatures with so much grace and stamina, by helping more tigers being brought into life, to recruit more help to leap out of danger and endangerment/extinction. #savethetigers
Below I have linked TWO National Geographic pages for more information on the Bengal Tiger and the Siberian Tigers, which both include awesome images and fascinating information. Also, I have linked a WWF page for extra support towards these incredible beasts - if you would like to donate please do, but if you don't want to spend any of your money please spread the awareness - anything helps! Finally, I have linked an official tiger day website which is full of knowledge, and will help you understand even further the utter importance of these animals!
The awesome WWF website is wonderful for educating people on the importance of these animals. It includes a vast variety of information on the threats we humans are causing them, as well as content on the different tiger families.
Thank you so much for reading this post!
Share the awareness - tigers must be saved!
Have a great day! :D #SHARETHELOVE
