Two requests. One from a reader, Swati.
One, please help spread the word and find her friend, Pranita. Here is the link to a blog that you can get back to in case you have any information, or know who to contact. Do take this as seriously as you can, please. May we never know the grief and fear of losing a loved one. I’m going to request all of you to pass on this link on Pranita through FB, Twitter, anything, because you never know what works.
This one is via Parul. Save the Tiger. Join up, sign up, do what you can, please. I did mention we were at Corbett a few months ago and didn’t see hide or hair of a tiger. Well, here’s why – only 1411 of them left. Here’s what you can do if you want to help.
Spread the Word
Let everyone know that our tigers are on the brink of extinction and that they need us. Now. You can start by joining the Save Our Tigers movement on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and spreading the word wherever you go – online or offline.
A short message can go a long way to help save our tigers. Let all your friends know about the movement through SMS – just type in your message and ask them to visit SaveOurTigers.com to join the roar.
Write to Editors
Write a letter or an email to editors of popular newspapers and magazines, asking them to support the cause and highlight the urgency to save our tigers. The more people we can reach and inform, the louder our roar will be.
Organizations such as WWF and The Corbett Foundation work for tiger conservation and need our active support. If possible, you can chip in with funds, volunteer for work or donate clothes, etc. for the forest guards by tying up with such organizations.
Volunteer for Our Tigers
Your time is the most important contribution for our tigers. If you think you have the skills or the commitment to help the tigers on-site, do contact an NGO working for tiger conservation to volunteer for our tigers.
Preserve our Natural Resources
Loss of habitat is one of our tigers’ biggest problems. We can reduce pressure on forests by avoiding unnecessary use of forest-derived products, such as paper and timber.
Be a Responsible Tourist
Visit tiger sanctuaries and national parks and discover our country’s natural heritage. But please remember that the wilderness is to be experienced, not to be polluted by packets of chips, etc.
