Protect India’s Tigers from Harmful Human Activities

Target: Wildlife Protection Society of India

Goal: Protect the remaining wild tigers of India from harmful human activities.

Recently, two tiger poachers were caught in Mansar, India. They are allegedly part of the “Baheliya gang,” a group that has claimed to have killed no less than five tigers in the last thirty days. Their illicit activity is encouraged by demand for tiger skins from Indian traders and the illegal trade of tiger body parts of China and Southeast Asia. India’s wild tiger population has decreased by over ninety percent due to habitat destruction and poaching. The two poachers that were recently caught were just eighteen and twenty years old.

Some have theorized that tourism revenue is a potential solution to the dwindling tiger population problem, but critics of this theory have pointed out that even viewing the tigers from a short distance encroaches upon their habitat. Recently, India created a new park, Sathyamangalam Wildlife Sanctuary, to try to protect the wild tigers. Another possible way to protect the tigers is to “collect and preserve their genetic material” in order to create captive breeding programs. These initiatives, despite working in theory, are much more difficult to implement in reality. We must encourage India to stop tiger-skin trading and pursue wildlife preservation plans that are known to be effective.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Wildlife Protection Society of India,

Recently, two tiger poachers were caught in Mansar, India. They are supposedly part of the “Baheliya gang,” a group that has claimed to have killed five tigers just in the last month. Their illegal activity is spurred on by a large demand for tiger skins from Indian traders and the illicit trade of tiger body parts of China and Southeast Asia. The population of India’s wild tigers has decreased by over ninety percent due to poaching and habitat destruction. The two poachers that were recently caught were only eighteen and twenty years old.

Many scientists have theorized that tourism revenue is a potential solution to the dwindling tiger population problem. Unfortunately, critics of this theory have indicated that even viewing the tigers from a distance disturbs them. Recently, India created a new park called Sathyamangalam Wildlife Sanctuary to try to protect the wild tigers. Another possible way to protect them is to “collect and preserve their genetic material” with the intention of creating captive breeding programs. These initiatives, despite working in theory, are much harder to implement in reality. We implore you to put an end to the trading of tiger skins and to pursue effective wildlife preservation plans.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
