Tigers of Bangladesh
How can wildlife lovers help? 1. Let me begin with the most obvious: Never buy any tiger products. Whether it’s real or fake, don’t buy it. 2. Next, spread the word about how we are losing our wild tigers. If you know someone is interested in buying tiger parts or products, let them know it comes at a cost to the whole planet. 3. This is where the NOAH community comes in...post Tiger Shots across the globe to bring awareness of this endangered animal (Wild or Captive). Tweet and post to your personal Facebook this effort to help WWF to succeed in bringing this great cat back from the verge of extinction.

As few as 3,200 remain according to WWF. Wild tiger numbers are at an all-time low. The largest of all the Asian big cats may be on top of the food chain and one of the most culturally important and best-loved animals, but they are also vulnerable to extinction. Tigers are forced to compete for space with dense human populations, face unrelenting pressure from poaching, retaliatory killings and habitat loss across their range. There is still hope... We can save wild tigers. WWF has set a bold but achievable goal of Tx2: doubling the number of tigers in the wild by 2022, when the next Year of the Tiger is celebrated. We are concentrating our efforts on protecting key landscapes where the big cats have the best chance of surviving and increasing over the long-term. Five decades of conservation experience has shown us that given enough space, prey and protection, tigers can recover. By saving tigers, we also save the biologically rich and diverse landscapes where they still roam — Asia’s last great rain forests, jungles and wild lands. These forests are home to thousands of other species, people and the food, freshwater and flood protection that local communities need to survive.
