Capturing Life At Its Best

Save The Tiger

As I mentioned in my May 22, 2010 blog: Bengal Tiger, this is the Year of the Tiger on the Chinese Calendar.  With so few tigers left in the wild today, it is more important than ever to save this majestic cat.

Here are some of the different ways that you can help save the Tigers:

World Wildlife Fund

  • Species Adoption – Give a gift that will help protect the future of nature. Your symbolic adoption supports WWF’s global efforts to protect wild animals and their habitats.  You can also give Species Adoption gift cards so your recipient can pick what species they want to adopt.
  • Donate

SaveTigersNow.org – This is part of World Wildlife Fund.  You can donate and your donation will go to:

  • strengthen grassroots projects to save tiger habitat across its range
  • support antipoaching efforts on the ground
  • build political will so that governments commit to bold, game-changing strategies that give wild tigers a future

SaveTheTigerFund.org

  • Save The Tiger Fund (STF) is a partnership program between the ExxonMobil Foundation and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) established in 1995 focused on the conservation of wild tigers.

  • Every little bit helps. You can speak up about the cause. You can write or blog about our tigers. Even staying up-to-date with tiger facts like knowledge of tiger sanctuaries, their population, news updates, etc. helps. You can also donate money to NGOs working for the cause, like WWF-India. If we don’t act now, we can lose this part of our heritage forever.

  • Donate

TigerHaven.org

  • Big cat sanctuary and rescue facility located in Tennessee. Similar to a animal shelter for dogs and cats except it is a no kill facility and it is a permanent home for the big cats.
  • These cats do not work for a living, they just enjoy the rest of their lives.
  • Adopt a cat at $53/year to help feed and house these wonderful cats.  WIth your donation, you will receive a certificate and an 8×10 photo of the cat that you choose.

These are just some of the ways that you can help the tiger population.  Anything that you can do would be appreciated.
