BENEFITING: World Wildlife Fund

THE STORY:

My goal is to reach $700 to help WWF save wild tigers by April 24! Thank you to everyone who has supported this project in an effort to help save tigers so far, but there is so much to be done if we do not want to see this incredible and influential animal go extinct within the next 10-12 years!! I cannot imagine a world where tigers are not free to roam our planet and instead only a few are stuck in zoos for the generations who would not know of tigers otherwise. I cannot imagine such a time, so to me the only option is to do as much as we can and give as much as we can to help save tigers and help WWF carry out their plans to double the wild tiger population by 2022!! The time to act is NOW, so we don't look back and say if only we had (insert a possible solution here), there would still be tigers.

Help World Wildlife Fund (WWF) save wild tigers from extinction!! There is not much time to waste because there are only about 3,200 wild tigers left on the PLANET!

Why Help Save the Tigers?

Poaching, habitat loss and fragmentation have reduced the global population of the tiger to less than 3,500 and the pressures continue to mount. Under the current scenario, it is predicted that the tiger may well be extinct within the coming decade.

The loss of the tiger will have implications much larger than simply the loss of a charismatic animal species. Habitats where wild tigers live are high-value ecosystems that provide vital services to humans, such as carbon sequestration, recreational services, maintenance of hydrological balance, crop pollination, protection from natural disasters and soil erosion and preservation of genetic diversity of plants. As an instance, tourism values from tiger habitats, though still under-priced, run into billions of dollars today and contribute to the livelihoods of millions of people worldwide.(from Globaltigerinitiative.org)

How your donation will help:

Your support will help WWF save tigers across their habitat- from India and Indonesia all the way to Russia Far East

WWF will focus its activities on anti-poaching efforts in critical tiger sites.

WWF will build political will in tiger range countries to protect and connect tiger habitats on a massive scale, and clamp down on tiger trade.

WWF plans, if successful, are expected to double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next year of the tiger!

Please make the choice to help save these incredible animals from extinction and make sure the lives of millions of people are not affected by the loss of these beautiful creatures! Donate whatever you can now or visit http://www.savetigersnow.org/ for other ways you can help!
