"International Tiger Day"
" The tiger is a Royal Guest on the earth "
On July 29, the world will celebrate Tiger day. Tigers are among the most emblematic species in the world. They are hunters of alpha species such as deer and wild bears. The only predator is a tiger.
As the largest member of the cat family, the tiger is strong, powerful and one of nature's most feared predators. A tiger's legs are so powerful that they can remain standing even when dead, they have been known to have been shot, bleed out, and die all while standing up. Tiger likes water. They are good swimmers and often cool off in pools or streams.
Large predators need to be able to sneak up on their prey and the tigers' distinctive coat acts camouflage, hiding them as they stalk prey in dense vegetation.
Tigers are endangered and some of the biggest threats to their survival include illegal poaching, loss of habitat due to agriculture and urbanization, and reduction in prey availability.
Social media is an excellent platform to spread awareness about tiger protection.
Gajera Vidyabhavan educators presented a small video related to saving the tiger. Through the tiger mask activity, educators explain the importance of the tiger that it is a symbol of courage that motivates us to compete for the world with courage.
"Save the tigers before they are silenced forever."
