Thank Indian Supreme Court for Protecting Wild Tigers

Target: Indian Supreme Court

Goal: Thank Court for ensuring more protection for wild tigers

Tigers are a very endangered species. A century ago, 100,000 of the animals roamed the wild places of the world. Today, only about 3,200 remain. Tigers are already extinct in many countries they used to populate, such as Iran, Singapore, Turkey, and Indonesia, and their numbers continue to drop rapidly elsewhere. If poaching and habitat destruction remain at their current levels, tigers will soon be extinct worldwide.

Thankfully, there is hope for these animals. The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) recently announced that tigers are making a comeback in India. In the southwestern area of the country, tiger numbers have increased nearly 50% in the past decade. In Nagarahole and Bandipur National Parks, the animals are reaching what is called “saturation level,” meaning there are almost too many for the land to support. This is all great news.

The resurgence is due in great part to the work of the Indian Supreme Court. The Court has made critical decisions in the past few years that protect tigers and ensure their survival. They have stationed armed anti-poaching patrols around tiger preserves, discouraging and frightening those who would kill the animals for profit. The Court has also established state programs that relocate people who live in and around tiger habitats, providing the animals with more room to roam. Plus, “forest corridors” have been designed. These narrow plots of jungle land cut through highly populated areas and connect different national parks. They allow tigers to move from one forested area to another without disturbing their human neighbors.

All of these changes and programs have allowed Indian tigers to thrive and repopulate the jungles. Thank the Indian Supreme Court for their commitment to protecting these beautiful creatures.

PETITION LETTER

Dear Indian Supreme Court,

Thank you so much for all you have done for the tigers of your country. As you know, tigers are a very endangered species. A century ago, 100,000 of the animals roamed the wild places of the world. Today, only about 3,200 remain, and tigers are already extinct in many countries they used to populate.

However, they are not extinct in India, and they will not disappear from your country anytime soon. This is due to the wonderful work you have done to protect them. You have stationed armed anti-poaching patrols around tiger preserves, discouraging and frightening those who would kill the animals for profit. You have also established state programs that relocate people who live in and around tiger habitats, providing the animals with more room to roam. Plus, you have designed “forest corridors.” These narrow plots of jungle land cut through highly populated areas and connect different national parks. They allow tigers to move from one forested area to another without disturbing their human neighbors.

All of these changes and programs have allowed tigers to thrive and repopulate the jungles of your country. Again, thank you so much for your commitment to protecting these beautiful creatures.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
