We have this to say for starters – let us, each of us, sensitize people around us towards the need for conservation of not only the Tiger, but all forms of life and nature. And this activity shouldn’t be done as routine or at pre-ordained times, but should be done continuously to the extent that all communication should be veered around to conservation. Discussing business – push in some conservation small talk; Buying groceries – sensitize the grocer; Chatting with friend – chat up something on wildlife. Over and above all – sensitize children, the future citizens!
We agree – action is needed. But writing is equally important to bring awareness to take action.
That’s a nice description of the food pyramid and the tiger’s importance in our ecosystem.
Putting barbed fence is actually harmful to wild animals and they get killed. The forest cannot be made a zoo. The government alone cannot save tigers. The whole society has to actively co-operate in this effort. Our mindset has to change. We should think of not only consuming but generating and regenerating. Plant trees. Stop unnecessary damage to natural resources. Stop consuming products that damage the ecosystem.
On the contrary, government and forest department have been doing a lot of things; it is we common people and our consumerism that is destroying our natural heritage. So, the responsibility is upon all of us to support and participate in activities to save tigers.
That’s the spirit. Each drop (of public opinion) counts.
This is a request to everyone. Please desist from named accusations and hearsay. We seek to point out anomalies in the system or wrong attitudes in general and educate people and discuss options.
