At the start of the 20th century, there were more than 100,000 tigers living in the wild. However today, due to poaching, habitat loss and retaliation killings, the number of tigers has scaled down to a few thousands. This is why, an assembly on International Tiger Day was organized for our young leaders, where important facts about tigers were shared. The Presidians talked about the launch of project 'Save Tiger' as only 1,411 tigers are left in our country. They also presented a short skit portraying the pitiful life of a tiger, who is being killed for no reason. Enthralling the audience by shouting out slogans like 'shoot the tiger with the camera and not with the gun' and 'killing tigers is the greed, not the need: Save Tigers', the Presidians showcased their humongous support towards tiger conservation issues.
At Presidium Ashok Vihar, we realize that if we don’t act immediately, this important part of our food chain will extinct and will create imbalance in our eco system. These magnificent creatures will disappear off the face of the earth, leaving behind only photographs and descriptions for the coming generations to see. The assembly concluded with an insightful thought: 'when a man kills a tiger, he calls it a sport, but when a tiger kills a man, it is called ferocity'.
