Protecting Endangered Animals

Thursday , 15, September 2016 Comments Off on Protecting Endangered Animals

You do not have to be an animal rights activist to see the importance of protecting endegeared animals. One of these animals that is facing the danger of extinction is the tiger. This adorable animal from the cat family has been reduced to less than 3,890 in the entire world. Tigers have been hunted relentlessly in Asia and Siberia for their teeth, paws, and skin, sometimes even organs. Others have been smuggled to be pets by the rich and wealthy, where they have died due to poor conditions, or lived very miserable lives. There is so much more work to be done in the protection of tigers. There are various government incentives that have been set up in the protection and conservation of this iconic species, which include banning the trade of tiger’s derivatives and protecting its natural habitat. However, habitat protection and conserving of the wildlife are not the only isolated means of approaching this issue. Traditional Chinese medicine depends on tiger parts and this is a major concern as it threatens the survival of tigers. Many of the countries where tigers are found need to address this issue even if they will need international support.

There are many international conservation groups that have combined their efforts in saving the tiger form facing complete extinction. These need to work extremely hard so that the fear facing these species of losing all in the next few years might be erased. In order to successfully meet this goal, a carefully planned strategy needs to be put in place so that immediate conservation efforts are implemented. This can begin by studying the survival requirements of the tiger in the wild. A tiger needs to have sufficient water, prey, vegetation and a wide area of habitat in order to survive. These areas need to be completely free of human activities that would disrupt their normal routine.

  • Scientist efforts; scientist can survey the habitats which meet the above mentioned conditions which encourage the survival of tigers. These animal specialists also need to improve their research methods so that they can better understand the behaviors and ecological issues which result in long term solutions.
  • Develop community based conservation programs; the rural households and who depend on the forests habitat where tigers live need to be involved in the participation and massive action of these indigenous tribes. Local government and non-governmental institutions should work along with such communities to help them build alternative resources for their livelihood.
  • Mass education; those indigenous tribes who engage in activities which threaten the existence of these tigers need to receive education and awareness programs to help them appreciate the importance of conserving the tiger. Certain superstitious beliefs regarding the parts of the tiger have led to unnecessary killing of the tiger. Others use the body parts for medicinal purposes.

Since it is clear that the tiger depends on certain conditions to survive, the fact that it is facing extinction means that its habitat is not well protected. As a top predator, it is natural that the human race naturally feels insecure around this hunter. But the god thing is that tigers do not enjoy being in close proximity to human activities. So by protecting its environment, the tiger can be protected and saved from being effaced from the face of the earth.
