  8. From today's Facebook post:

    In the beginning of the 20th century, there were approximately 100,000 tigers in the wild. Today, there are less than 4,000. We have lost more than 95% of the world’s wild tiger population. To say they are in danger is an understatement. Throughout the years, tigers have lost their habitat, have been affected by climate change, have been hunted and poached, and have been exploited and abused in captivity. Even though extinction seems to be looming for these big cats, the battle to save them has not yet been lost. India has reported a 30% growth in their tiger population because of intensive efforts to save the species. This is a huge win for conservation, and will hopefully be one of many victories.

    Today is International Tiger Day. The purpose of the day is to promote the protection of wild habitats, to raise awareness about the plight of tigers as an endangered species, and to gain support for their conservation. Extinction is forever. Protecting tigers and the other charismatic megafauna of our planet is not just a fleeting “cause”, but rather a journey that needs attention, support, and action. #JungleDragon
