The Staff and Family of The Institute of Greatly Endangered And Rare Species would like for you to help preserve the endangered Tigers Species as well as all endangered species. See below for ways that you can make a difference.
Since the year 1999, human consumption worldwide has surpassed the Earth’s ability to replenish itself by 20%. People are converting the earth’s biomass into human mass at a constantly expanding rate. This has a profound impact on not only every species on Earth, but on the planet itself.
We must take an active stand to lower our consumption and control our population: Reduce what we use, reuse what we can and recycle the rest.
There are some other simple things that we can all do to help conserve the limited resources of this planet.
*Stay informed. Visit zoos. Visit T.I.G.E.R.S. Preserve in Myrtle Beach. View nature programs. Read books, magazines, and web sites on conservation.
*Share what you’ve learned with family and friends.
*Join an organization that makes a difference in conservation.
*Volunteer your time at a zoo, nature center, park, aquarium, or museum where you live.
*Recycle and buy recycled products.
*Install water-saving devices and adopt habits that conserve water in your home. Turn off the tap.
*Turn off lights when you leave a room and encourage others in your house to do the same.
*Consider a vegetarian diet. It takes 5 – 10 pounds of grain to produce one pound of meat.
*Landscape for local wildlife including using plants native to your area.
*Consider creating a Backyard Wildlife Habitat and having it certified by the National Wildlife Federation. For more information visit their website at www.nwf.org.
*Use wood responsibly harvested and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. For more information visit their website at www.ecotimber.com.
*It is very important not to buy products made from wild animals. This includes fish. Everything from salmon and shrimp to catfish can be farm raised nowadays. Humans take more than one hundred and twenty million tons of fish from the oceans every year. The seas cannot replenish themselves fast enough to meet this demand. It makes perfect ecological sense to eat farm raised fish. For more information check out the Global Aquaculture Alliance at www.gaalliance.org. Doing small things like this will have a great positive impact on the environment, not just here at home but all around the world.
Instead of conquering the Earth we should protect it and all the plants, animals and waters that share this world with us.
The famous naturalist William Beebe once said: "When the last individual of a race of living beings breaths no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again."
Help us save these beautiful animals by joining T.I.G.E.R.S. adopt an animal program and help make a difference. For more information contact T.I.G.E.R.S.
