Our Royal Bengal tigers are likely to disappear by the end of this century. How can we help them survive?
Today, we are left with an exclusive number of 1411 tigers and their existence is on threat. 'Save Our Tiger' -the recently launched broadcasting commercial by AIRCEL has framed a mission to preserve our wildlife heritage.
The zeal, with which the Project Tiger was initiated in 1972, by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, has deviated from its ambition. The most recent Tiger Task Force headed by Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh in 2005, has also alerted all poaching networks. But, all legal practices resulted in vain. As of now, out of the 40, 000 accumulations of tigers in the last century, a mere few are left.
The Global Tiger Workshop conducted in 2009 highlighted the main drive for the sharp acknowledgement in the individual population. Excessive poaching for illegal trade, habitat loss and fragmentation are the reasons behind the plight of these wild animals. The creation of traditional penalization is in this world. Way back, in 1991, Chinese polity hit disclosed the export of individual bone medicines, that included 15079 cartoons of tablets, 5250 kg of liquid syrups and 31500 bottles of wine.
Add to this, a most recent study organized by WWF(World Wild Fund) in 2010, stressed on the gist of climate change on the Royal Bengal Tiger. It has been estimated that by 2070, the sea-level will upraise to 11.2 inches above 2000 levels and may gulp the entire mangrove forest, of Sunderban National Park (West Bengal).In this era these types of issues are popping up with or without concern. We, human-beings are the exclusive species who are able to fight against some odds. Let us not cut down the wild habitat and build dream-like houses for ourselves. Let us be answerable and put on prizewinning efforts to hold and maintain our earth's ecological balance.
The heart-touching visual of the advertisement ends leaving a question mark on our mind. But, can we afford to leave the issue without support? It is high time to center the cry of our national animal and permit them to live. 'Save Our Tigers' - Their end indicates the beginning of our end.
