Anti-Tiger Reserve Project Agitation Committee staged a Dharna

A large number of people under the banner of Huli Samrakshana Yojane Virodhi Horata Samiti (Anti-Tiger Reserve Project Agitation Committee) staged a dharna in front of the taluk office in Mangalore on Friday demanding that the Union Government give up its plan to declare Kudremukh National Park (KNP) as a tiger reserve.Addressing the protesters, former MLA V. Sunil Kumar said that the State Government had made it clear to the Centre that it would not allow KNP to be declared as a tiger reserve. But the Union Government wanted to have a tiger reserve in KNP. Nearly 1,500 tribal families in KNP and 4,000 families living on its borders would be affected by the project. Many tribal people had been affected after the Kudremukh National Park came into existence in 1987.Though the State Government opposed inclusion of 10 sites in the Western Ghats for heritage tag from UNESCO, the Centre had an opposite view. Now it was arm-twisting the State Government over the tiger reserve issue. The Centre should rescind its proposal on the tiger reserve. “We will fight against the project till it is given up,” Mr. Kumar said.

Save Tiger

In India only 1711 Tigers are left. As per Tiger is our National
Animal, we should care about them and say no to Tiger leathers.

Not only is tiger a beautiful animal but it is also the indicator of the forest's health. Saving the tiger means we save the forest since tiger cannot live in places where trees have vanished and in turn secure food and water for all. 

If we make sure tigers live, we have to make sure that deer, antelope and all other animals that the tiger eats (its prey base) live. To make sure that these herbivores live, we must make sure that all the trees, grass and other plants that these prey animals need for food are

protected. In this way, the whole forest gets saved! Saving the tiger means saving its entire forest kingdom with all the other animals in it.

Also forests catch and help store rainwater and protect soils. In this way we protect our rivers and recharge groundwater sources. Areas with less trees lead to floods, killing people and destroying homes. It takes away the precious soil, leaving behind a wasteland. The soil jams up our lakes and dams, reducing their ability to store water. By destroying the tiger's home, we not only harm tigers, but also ourselves.

The tiger thus becomes the symbol for the protection of all species on our earth since it is at the top of the foodchain. This is why we sometimes call the tiger, an apex predator, an indicator of our ecosystem's health.
