Too many questions but only one simple answer to it.

People who want to help are either middle class and pushed back. People who are rich become more rich by putting more advertisment and they become selfish.

@ caitsith01
The moderators wouldn't allow me to post any links to NGO's/information that I have. If you're still interested, I'll give you my email so that I can provide you with the information.

Caitsith01 - I tried to pm you with details of an organisation I encountered in the Ranthambhore area, which took a wonderfully holistic approach to tiger conservation, but the system wouldn't let me. Don't know whether this is because you've not yet made 10 posts (I know you have to have made 10 posts before you can send a private message), or whether you've also opted not to receive private messages.

If you post another message to take your post count above 10, I'll have another go.

@MRSC_772 - that certainly answers a few of my own questions. I also couldn't figure out why I couldn't PM. Guess I'll post a few more in the next day or two then. Thanks for the info!

And yes one of the groups is at Ranthambhore.

I have never felt so helpless. I just saw the Broken Tail's cub tiger story and I couldn't help tears running down my face. Probably the United States could put some kind of pressure to the government of India about this matter. I don't know. All I know something must be done NOW, QUICKLY before this beautiful and majestic creature is gone forever. We must educate and instill good sentiment in people. I agree with Fugly, we have to shorten families for the sake of other living beings, not only in India but in many overpopulated countries of this planet.

A quarter of that is one heck of a gene pool.
Corruption is the mainstay of most of the problems in India,there is not a shortage of funds in India, just that some have too much, and so many have nothing.
But even if all the corruption was stamped out, and tiger numbers were able to only double, where would they live ?
Nature would very quickly provide the habitat for them, tigers, being cats, can provide the future generations of tigers themselves.

Maybe this thread should be moved out of the wildlife forum ?
i heard there are more pet tigers in florida than there are in INdia in ht wild. now that is sick.

I saw a movie with these tigers in the USA and many are kept in stinky holes and not cared for properly. A tiger cub is so cute people dont realise that it becomes 350kg and has teeth 5 inches long and they gonna have to deal with that.

Agreed. Along the same lines, I just saw a doc on raccoons the other night. Their kits are so adorable, so adorable that thousands of raccoons were imported as pets to Japan after the success of the Rascal the Raccoon (1977) cartoon series.

However, after the raccoons turned a year old they started to attack/bite their owners. So the owners let them go into the wild &/or they just plain escaped. Now they are an overpopulated menace in that country - as they have no natural enemy. The Japanese government has commenced a trapping/extermination program with a quota/annum in the thousands.

Don't fool with mother nature!

Thumbs up Tigers

Hi.

Since you live in Australia, I would suggest you contact Sybelle Foxcroft, who lives in Melbourne and is doing considerable work for the tigers! You can give her my reference - we know each other well. She's already doing lots to save tigers from the Tiger Temple in Thailand and now has organized a Freedom walk for the Tigers of India. Your donation will be well-spent! She runs an organization called CEE4life in Melbourne.

Keep up the good work!

That is very depressing. Also saw a report yesterday on either BBC or the Guardian stating that poaching of various species, including the tiger, funds assorted wars and terrorists. It makes me sick what people do to animals.

thanks for posting this.
The walk details are on facebook under Cee4life events. Cee4life.org is the website.

There is also a petition to sign on saving tigers.I did that. I just think we need to have a forum where we can discuss ideas.

Tigers could vanish from the face of the earth if we continue to be callous with our forests. Deforestation, poaching, and climate change have brought tiger population to an alarmingly low level. Out of the total number of tigers, there are only 3200 left in the wild, and the rest are in captivity. A number of groups in India work towards the conservation of tigers.

WWF-India

The World Wildlife Fund came to India in 1969 with the aim of creating a better world for future generations. In line with this goal, it set up the Save the Tiger project in India to mitigate the decline in tiger population through awareness campaigns and participation in environment policy formulation.

The Corbett Foundation

This initiative was set up in 1994 by Mr. Khatau who felt strongly about tiger conservation. The project aims to promote environmental awareness and effective wildlife management.

Big Cat Rescue

This is a sanctuary involved in the rehabilitation of abandoned tigers and is committed to educating people about the significance of maintaining tiger population.

Welcome to IM, Jinal. Good first post on a topic that receives little attention and that too inconsistently. Conservation is a big challenge, especially when conflicts of territory between man and animal arise. Add poverty, greed, corruption and the decadent rich (who want organs for bragging rights or for unspeakable prowesses) and you have a big, bad, ugly situation.
