What does the world gain when we protect tigers?

Tigers are a unique species whose population has significantly decreased, posing a significant threat to the environment. Due to this, many tigers are kept in captivity. As vital ecosystem regulators, tigers play a crucial role. If measures are not taken to safeguard this rare species, they may face extinction, causing adverse effects on humans and other animals.

Today, we will explore the significance of protecting tigers and how these magnificent animals benefit our world.

Why is it crucial to save tigers?

There are several reasons why saving tigers is imperative. Here are some of the most significant ones:

The phrase "survival of the fittest" is well applicable to tigers, as they are one of the strongest species in the forest. Being at the top of the food chain, tigers primarily consume animals like deer and other herbivores. By doing so, they help to regulate the population of certain animals that feed on natural vegetation in the forest.

This, in turn, helps to preserve natural vegetation and other essential trees and plants, keeping the forests alive. Trees and plants absorb carbon dioxide to produce food, and in return, they release oxygen, which is vital for our survival. If tigers are not protected, the population of certain herbivores could increase uncontrollably, resulting in an imbalance in the ecosystem and an increase in carbon storage, which can cause hotter climates and respiratory diseases.

Forests play a crucial role in providing freshwater to both humans and other species. Tigers are intelligent creatures that tend to live in areas where there’s enough water, and they keep the population of herbivores in check. Some of the most popular locations where tigers reside are Indonesia, Malaysia, and India. 

Forests reduce soil erosion, the residue which makes the water clean, and improve its flow. Hence, if we will not take some action to save tigers, we and other species will not be able to get fresh water, and without water, we can’t survive for a long time.

Although tigers are at the top of the food chain, they indirectly help other wildlife. Tigers live in densely vegetated areas, where other significant species like elephants, pygmy hogs, and Bengal floricans also reside. By protecting tigers and their natural habitat, we can also save other wildlife species from going extinct.

These are just a few examples of the benefits we gain from protecting tigers. To preserve the earth's ecological system, we must take action to protect tigers and their natural habitat.
