Save Our Tigers
“Our national animal is fighting for its life.
From around 40,000 at the turn of the last century, there are just 1411 tigers left in India.
If we don’t act now, we could lose this part of our heritage forever.
Speak up, blog, share the concern, stay informed… Every little bit helps.
Aircel has partnered with WWF-India to help save our tigers. Explore the site to know how you can help.
Watch this space for updates from Stripey, the tiger cub…”
… And I was devastated deep in my heart to the maximum, to say the least, as I watched the agonizing image of the two months old tiger cub and went through these nerve-racking lines on the page of http://saveourtigers.com
An obviously concerned & charged Basab Mukherjee, one of those humans who’ve got involved in spreading the word around, says quite pertinently:
“I found a very touching picture in the cub, touching lines too. Saving tigers comes at second stage. First we should introspect how much we love all those animals that abound us. “Save our Tigers” cannot just be a slogan. We must feel what we say. Pretensions won’t work. We need sufficient environment awareness to preserve the ecosystem so that humans and tigers do not confront. Also we need stringent laws, and also their enforcement. If I get the license to be a bit emotional, those people should be shot at sight who try to kill innocent animals, or tigers for that matter. No trials, no democracy. If you can look at the eyes of a three month old cub, you will find your own child of same age. Think that way. Only then can you have real power in your roar.”
Another notably stirred & grief-stricken Michelle says: “My heart was in pieces after seeing the advert on television regarding the little cub. It is heartrending that humankind has managed to destroy our planet and the beautiful, majestic creatures that we have the privilege sharing this world with, to such a degree. I think it speaks volumes as to what we as a species have become. I truly hope that this campaign will touch millions of others as it touched me and that the senseless, needless killing of our big cats can be brought to an end! I hope that the roar becomes deafening!”
Well… Yes!!! It may be a bit too late now, but better late than never… Time to roar and make the authorities see reason, be human and take immediate action towards saving our gorgeous national animal from extinction!
I vehemently request my fellow bloggers & readers to blog this, tweet this, share this on social networking sites and forums and contribute to the movement by getting involved for the immensely significant cause.
Come; let’s do our iota of it... NOW…!
I just did… when are you doing yours…?
