Tiger day.

  1. 1. Tiger - the symbol of national pride The magnificent tiger, Panthera tigris is a striped animal. It has a thick yellow coat of fur with dark stripes. The combination of grace, strength, agility and enormous power has earned the tiger its pride of place as the national animal of India.
  2. 2. A LONG HISTORY OF PERSECUTION •Habitat loss due to agricultural and developmental activities • Poaching and Hunting : For over 1,000 years , tigers have been hunted and poached as Status symbols. For making decorative items like floor and wall coverings. As souvenirs and curios. Its skin is used to make robes. Bones and skull are used in asian traditional medicines. Tiger bones are also superstitously used to scare away evil influences. Tiger fats are used in balms and potion. Claws are used as talismans. •Human tiger conflicts
  3. 3. Less than 100 years ago………… tiger prowled almost all of asia . TODAY their range has been reduced to just 7% of its former size. Tigers are now found in only 13 range states : Bangladesh Bhutan Cambodia China India Indonesia Lao PDR Malaysia Myanmar Nepal Russia Thailand Vietnam
  4. 4. Population at a tipping point •Although there are no accurate estimates of the world tiger population, numbers are thought to have fallen by over 95% since the turn of the 20th century-down from perhaps 100,000 to the current estimate of possibly as few as 3200individuals. •Three subspecies – Bali , Javan ,and Caspian tigers were extinct by the 1980s •Even in India the species stronghold , a recent government census suggests there may be as few as 1400tigers left.
  5. 5. And we would have to take the blame..... Mankind would have to make a big apology to future generations which would never get the chance to see the biggest of all cats, one of the most majestic, beautiful, amazing creatures ever to walk the Earth. Extinction is permanent, and it is the failings of modern man
  6. 6. Increase in Herbivores less producers climate change Makes human life miserable Less Tiger  Tiger is an apex predator- a top carnivore.  It checks the population of herbivores like deer , gaur etc.  Without tiger their number expands.  This increase totally ravage its food source-vegetations.  Without vegetation------it leads to natural calamities like flood , soil erosion etc and  Causes climate change------ leads to more carbon dioxide emission , without plants to trap these , it results in greenhouse effect & global warming.
  7. 7. A home for tigers= A home for others With just one tiger, WE protect around 100 sq km of forest. . To save tigers we need to protect the forest habitats across Asia where they live. And by saving these places we will not only allow tigers to roam freely, but also many other endangered species that live or co-exist with them and FORM THE VERY THING THAT MAKES OUR PLANET UNIQUE.
  8. 8.  International Tiger Day is held annually on July 29 to give worldwide attention to the reservation of tigers.  It is both an awareness day and a celebration.  It was founded at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in 2010.  This was done because at that moment wild tigers were too close to extinction.  The goal of Tiger Day is to promote the protection and expansion of the wild tigers habitats and to gain support through awareness for tiger conservation.
  9. 9. • Many animal welfare organisations pledged to help these wonderful creatures and are still helping to raise funds to reach this goal.
  10. 10. Visit some worthy Tiger Related website. Spend some time having a look around at the information provided there to see what's of most interest to you.  Register an activity that you, your school, business, or workplace, or your community group are doing for Tiger day. The great thing about registering your activity is that you can inspire others who learn about what you're doing.  Take a moment to check out the latest news added to the site regularly. Check out the activities that are already planned in your area, region, or country.  Use the internet to search for Tiger Day events near you. You might like to join in what has been planned, or even help out if you're early enough to become a part of the volunteers for the event.
  11. 11. Consider holding your own event on tiger day If you don't mind a little planning and effort, why not hold your own event for Tiger DAY? You could enthuse your neighborhood street, your friends, your local community, your school, a group of businesses, or the media to become involved too. Some ideas for your own event include: •Arts and Crafts exhibitions with a Tiger Day theme/focus •A Film festival focused on need to protect and conserve our tigers. •Competitions– you could make lots of different tiger-themed competitions, from painting competitions to online tiger-poetry. •Concerts – this can be a cool way to get lots of people together in the spirit of Tiger day •Demonstration activities •Drama and poetry •Education and awareness-raising •Information kits •Online and social media activities •Publicity and media coverage •Sports activities •Start a tiger themed blog •Other ideas you think would work really well. And all this can also help you raise funds for DONATING MONEY to tiger conservation organisation
  12. 12. Hold a Tiger Day fair. Maybe your school, your street, or your local neighborhood is interested in getting together to have an Tiger Day fair. Things to have at the fair include costume or themed party tiger theamed play. Photography/art/craft sale Money raised can go towards a tiger conservation group agreed upon by all the participants running the fair. Street plays and ralleys may also could be conducted
  13. 13. Hold educational sessions about the need to protect and conserve tigers.. Teachers ,professionals, students, anyone who cares about the saving tigers and is willing to teach others, can all provide lessons for others. Educate people to be an informed shopper since many products you use in your daily life may impact tiger habitats. Demand for palm oils-threatems tiger habitats in countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia.Ban products that are made up of tigers body parts etc
  14. 14. Make today that you choose to adopt an eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle. Do an inventory of your energy usage, your consuming habits, and your reliance on unsustainable products and make a list of ways you intend to curb your unsustainable activities and habits and replace them with sustainable ones. Set yourself a timeline to meet, with harder changes coming at the end of the timeline. From today, start reading the labels of origin and manufacture of your goods. See the products that you use are certified as sustainable (for example, all forest products with the FSC logo are logged using sustainable forestry practices)
  15. 15. Engage others in conversations about your concerns on saving tigers. Don't be preachy, just appropriately present some facts and then explain your feelings about them. Encourage them to respond and if they have no opinions or they seem to not know much, help them learn some more by imparting your knowledge on the need to save tigers in a friendly and helpful manner. Don't shoot down the people who are trying to make improvements; instead, get involved and help them!
