India is losing tigers due of clearing of forests and habitats. It has affected tigers in many ways as the space they live in get reduced and also with the same, the prey like deer, wild boars and pig cattle etc are reducing in huge numbers making it difficult for the tigers to survive.
The reduction of land also affects the breeding of the tigers. The poaching for tiger skins to be used in medicinal field and shopping industry is also leading to the loss of tigers in huge numbers. Poaching is a very big problem in our country. Skin of tigers is used for medicinal purposes.
If the number of tigers is reduced it will affect the entire food ecosystem. We need to share the information about the tigers with the fellow students. It is important to educate people about the need to save tigers. Whenever visit any tiger reserve, follow the rules set by the forest dept.
