Tigers and the large number of ecosystem services they provide are being lost at an unprecedented rate. This has put the future of our generation and the generations to come, under grave danger.
The tiger is facing threats from poaching, habitat destruction owing to urbanisation, climate change and a mismanagement that has plagued the country ever since. Unfortunately, the efforts being made to help the tiger fight for survival (his and ours) are but a drop in the ocean.
Thus, Delhi Greens, and a series of organisations have come together and have called for a Rally for saving the tiger, and the right of future generations to survive and prosper.
