THE STORY:

Melissa F wrote -

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.


Please 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!
