In awareness, of the decreasing number of Tigers 🐅 found in the wild today, Nature Photographers Group/NatureGraphy is holding a contest, meant to show the world the beauty we all risk losing, if we continue to turn a blind-eye at the fact that Tigers are endangered.
Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the issue,
six tiger subspecies have been classified as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The global population in the wild is estimated to number between 3,062 and 3,948 individuals, down from around 100,000 at the start of the 20th century, with most remaining populations occurring in small pockets isolated from each other, of which about 2,000 exist on the Indian subcontinent. – Wikipedia
It amazes me, how many people don’t know that Tigers will be the next Sabertooth, if people continue to think they’re doing fine, in their natural environment.
So, with this awesome Tiger contest, maybe the group can help start the conversation, where there is none.
- Submit your contest entry into the Nature Photographers Group and add hashtag #EndangeredTiger to your post.
- Only 3 photos per photographer.
- Zoo photos are allowed but the name of the Zoo must be added to the post.
- You must be the owner of the photo.
- All Tiger species are allowed in the contest.
If you don’t have any 🐅 photos, this might be a great time to go find some, at the zoo or in India. 😉
