The number of tigers is dwindling by the day and if we do not put in effort to save them, the coming generations would only know them through pictures and descriptions. Many organisations like CITES and India's Project Tiger have made some advancement with regards to spreading awareness of tiger conservation, and even maintaining natural habitats for them.
We also celebrate World Tiger Day as a way of celebrating whatever we have been able to achieve in this regard and also to promote further requirements in tiger conservation. In honour of World Tiger Day 2015, which falls on Wednesday, 29 July, here are some powerful quotes and slogans that will inspire you to fight for the splendid wild cats.
Protecting a top predator like the tiger keep forests and grasslands intact, and ensures that other species like rhinos and elephants can thrive. - Justin Winters, Executive Director of Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation:
When it comes to looking after all the species that are already endangered, there's such a lot to do that sometimes it might all seem to be too much, especially when there are so many other important things to worry about. But if we stop trying, the chances are that pretty soon we'll end up with a world where there are no tigers or elephants, or saw-fishes or whooping cranes, or albatrosses or ground iguanas. And I think that would be a shame, don't you? - Martin Jenkins, "Can We Save the Tiger?"
- Look at the tigers mighty and strong, killing them for their skin is very wrong.
- Tiger Tiger burning bright, will not let you fade out of sight, that is my promise and for you we will fight.
- When they are gone, when every last life is stolen, how will you remember them? Extinction is FOREVER.
