People all over the world understood the importance of the day and contributed to the celebrations in their own way. Interestingly, India represents nearly 70% of the world’s total tiger population and has already achieved the goal of doubling the number. Tigers die out due to unfavorable climate change, poaching and habitat loss. We can protect tigers by avoiding poaching and saving their habitats. Tiger bone is used as a medicine in various countries in South Asia. So on International Tiger Day, you can try teaching people to avoid tigers poaching.
The national animal population in India has been affected by several factors, including the illicit wildlife trade, human animal conflicts, habitat loss and fragmentation. International Tiger Day, also known as World Tiger Day, is celebrated on July 29 every year. The main goal is to raise awareness of the decrease in the number of wild tigers. It children’s shows live also aims to promote a global ecological system to protect the natural habitats of tigers and to raise public awareness of the tiger’s conversation. You can celebrate International Tiger Day while your children watch movies like ‘Madagascar’, ‘Ice Age’ and ‘Life of Pi’. You can use art to describe the effects of climate change on wild tigers.
Poaching and the illegal trading industry are very worrying. The demand for tiger bone, skin and other body parts leads to poaching and human trafficking. This has a monumental impact on the subpopulations of tigers, resulting in localized extinctions. The day is celebrated to raise awareness of the need for tiger conservation and 13 tiger-ranked countries decided to double their number of tigers at the St. Petersburg Summit by 2022.
The negative effects of poaching are discussed and explained to the local population. Tribal people help forest officials by explaining their way of life with these wild cats. After a steady decline from 1.00.000 to 3,200, now for the first time in a hundred years, the population of wild tigers is increasing. From 2010 to now, the number has increased from about 3,200 to an estimated 3,900.
Like other cats, tigers are carnivores and are essential to keep their range in an ecological balance. They benefit from smaller animals that are herbivores and therefore maintain a balance between the animals that feed on plants and the vegetation they feed. Today, the estimated number brings the tiger population to less than 4,000 tigers in the wild. One of the goals of the day is to double that number by 2022. Bengal tigers are lonely creatures and, like all tigers, they are carnivores.
This results in localized extinctions, making the revival of the tiger population almost impossible. Another threat that has negatively affected the tiger population is habitat loss. All over the world we witness a loss of tiger habitats due to access routes, human settlements, logging, plantations and agriculture.
Dedicated to the rehabilitation of battered and abandoned big cats and the prevention of extinction in nature. In addition to housing and caring for these animals, the Big Cat Rescue team is also committed to educating people about these majestic animals and their value to our planet. Up to 70% of the world’s population of wild tigers is in India.
Since the early 20th century, the populations of wild tigers have decreased by about 95%. Unfortunately, there are more tigers in captivity in the United States than in the wild. 2022, the Chinese Year of the Tiger, is marked as the year WWF wants to help double the number of wild tigers to over 6,000. The total tiger population worldwide is currently known as 3,900. About 3,000 of those wild tiger populations are found in India.
A afforestation campaign is being conducted to increase the habitats of the tigers. Forest protection will help prevent habitat loss and save these endangered species. Save the Tigers campaigns are conducted annually to raise awareness about the protection of tigers and their habitats.
