PROTECT THE TIGERS
We have lost almost 96% of the world’s wild tigers. But tiger populations are slowly recovering thanks to efforts such as the World Wildlife Fund working with 13 tiger-range countries to protect tiger habitats – for example a large area on the border of India and Bhutan.
Poets have written of the the tigers’ magnificent beauty.
“The Tyger” by the English poet William Blake begins:
Tyger, Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
“Always” by the Indian poet Kiran Verma envisions a NEW EARTH:
Where tigers roam the forests
And great whales roam the seas
