Shorties: we only have one last chance to save the tigers

“A tiger is a large-hearted gentleman with boundless courage and when he is exterminated – as exterminated he will be unless public opinion rallies to his support – India will be the poorer by having lost the finest of her fauna”

So said Jim Corbett, a man whose fate was bound to that of the tigers, in 1944. In his day, there were way over 100.000 tigers. Now there are some 3.000 of them. Unless something significant changes fast, they WILL disappear as a wild species, and tomorrow’s generation will only see them in pictures and zoos. You really should read this brilliant post from The Guardian.
