Save The Bengal Tigers!

Bengal Tigers are in danger of becoming extinct!

What exactly is a Bengal Tiger?

    Bengal Tigers are a type of tiger that are usually found in India. They weigh around 550 pounds abd are nearly 10 feet long. They live in dry and wet deciduous forests, temperate forests, mangrove forests, and grasslands.

Why they are endangered and why they matter

     There are less than 2,500 tigers left in the wild. There are many things that are causing them to be endangeredm including habitat loss, prey loss, and humans, but the most common thing is poaching.      Tigers are important because they are at the top of the food chain. Another reason why we should protect the tigers is because when a tiger is protectes, we protect other things with it, like land. 

What we can do to help

     One way you can help is by reducing demand for illegal wildlife products. Another way you can help save the tigers is by donating money to organizations like WWF.
