Pledge not to buy tiger parts and products
I’m surprised that this isn’t one of the most talked about issues in the world. Our beloved tigers may become extinct within a few years if we don’t help them. World Wildlife Fund has had an ongoing campaign to prevent the extinction of tigers for many years now. Actor and environmental conservationist Leonardo DiCaprio feels so strongly about this issue that he donated one million US dollars to WWF urgent tiger conservation efforts during the International Tiger Summit last year. Poaching and deforestation are leading our wild tigers into extinction. There are more tigers in captivity than there are in the wild. “A century ago, there were an estimated 100,000 tigers in the wild. Today, there are as few as 3,200. Consumer demand for tiger products is the most urgent threat to tigers that must be stopped.” WWF currently has a pledge that anyone can sign stating that they will not purchase any products made from tiger parts. I urge you to please sign the pledge by clicking here or the image above and ask others to do so as well. I can’t imagine a world without tigers and I hope I never have to see it become a reality.
