End Rampant Tiger Poaching

Tiger Keven Law

Target: Union Minister for Environment, Forest & Climate Change Shri Prakash Javadekar

Goal: Save tigers from increased poaching efforts.

More tigers have already been killed in India in 2016 than in the entirety of 2015, according to a recent report. According to The Wildlife Protection Society of India, 28 of the endangered animals have been killed as of April, three more than the 25 killed during all of last year. “The stats are worrying indeed,” said Tito Joseph, the group’s program manager. India is home to more than half of the world’s tiger population, with 2,226 in its reserves recorded in the most recent survey.

The new poaching statistics come on the heels of a similar report from the WWF and the Global Tiger Forum that  reported an increase in the wild tiger population. For the first time in more than a century, the tiger’s chances of survival have improved. To take a step backward at such a crucial moment is simply unacceptable. Sign the petition below and urge the Indian government to step up measures to curb poaching and save these precious animals.


Dear Minister Javadekar,

I am writing to express my grave concern about a recent report stating that more tigers have already been killed in the first four months of 2016 than in the entirety of the previous year. These animals have long faced an uphill battle against extinction, and your department is in a prime position to help them.

The new poaching statistics come after a similar report reported an increase in the wild tiger population. For the first time in more than a century, the tiger’s chances of survival have improved. To take a step backward at such a crucial moment is simply unacceptable, and I insist that your department intervene and help protect these valuable animals.

    The heartless cruel slaughter of these precious gorgeous cats must end. Protect our kitties!!


  3. India is becoming more and more unethical. Once the envy of the world for its respect for all living creatures, it has now become almost as bad as some far eastern countries.

    It has the largest amount of tanneries in the world, Kerala has next to no animal welfare rules – the abuse that goes on in that State is unimaginable. N India has a huge trade in dog meat – killing, cooking and selling the dogs for their meat, sometimes passing it off as mutton.

    The culprits are China and S Korea as usual – preying on poor villagers to kill tigers etc. in order to satisfy their hocus-pocus beliefs.

  4. Bev Woodburn says:

    Here we go again the poaching of such magnificent Tigers. No surprise and of course the vile China, and South Korea have their filthy hands in these murders of such beautiful animals. This is not culture or tradition, this is just plain animal cruelty. The fake medicinal claims have been proven false – they are purely marketing tactics created and promoted by greedy traffickers and poachers so they can make their blood money and GREED.
    This sadism and evilness must be stopped and banned forever.

  5. Leave animals alone let them be free

  6. Amar Taggarh says:

    As a citizen by birth to India, I am ashamed. India is the most corrupt place on this planet. Animal welfare is something they seldom think of because money talks there. You can get away with anything there. Time for the world to hold their allies to higher standards of care for all animals. Canada is not any better. Animals are not ours for profits or any other reason.
