Tigers are very important animals for the ecosystem. But growing human population and growing human greed is endangering the existence of tigers on this planet. Especially in India the tiger population is reduced drastically. At present the estimated population of tiger in India is between 2500 – 3800, which is not a great figure. Many tiger parts are used by humans because of age old misconceptions. This has always led humans to kill tigers for precious body parts.
Apart from this, growing human activity in tiger’s habitat has resulted in creating pressure on tiger population. Deforestation is leading to the loss of habitat for tigers. This can play havoc with the ecosystem as tigers are at the top of the food chain. They help to check the population of many hervbivores under control. Drastic steps need to be taken to ensure survival of tigers. As responsible inhabitants of this planet, it is our duty to leave a prosperous planet for the fixture generations.
