The Tiger is not just another predator in wildlife, but it is also a pivotal indicator of ecosystem balance. Being at the apex of the food chain, Tigers are necessary to keep a check on the herbivorous population and hence the vegetation, on which they feed.
But again! Can’t this balance be maintained by other predators like leopards or wild dogs? The jungle is a place where each and everything, whether animal, bird or plant, has its own place, purpose and role in maintaining the ecosystem balance. Leopards or other predators hunt mostly smaller animals (with few exception that can’t be counted), whereas well grown Tigers are capable of bigger hunts. So their role cannot be ignored. Saving Tigers is saving jungles. Jungles are our water catchment. So we are not only ensuring that these beautiful animals are saved but also our source of clean air, drinkable water, global warming regulator and much more.
Therefore, Tigers are an integral part of our earth ecosystem. It is not that they need us to save them but we need them to save our planet and ourselves. I do believe that if we don’t take the “save our tiger” initiative seriously now, it will not be long before we end up with a “save ourselves” initiative. So if we want our children to enjoy a beautiful planet with clean and healthy environment to grow up in then – Let the Tiger Live!!!!!!!!!
