www.tigertime.info : Spend a vital 10 seconds of your time to help save the tiger… Sign up online to TigerTime, the worldwide movement set up by British artist and conservationist David Shepherd CBE to save the tiger in the wild. Shockingly, 96.5% of wild tigers have been slaughtered in the last 100 years. There are only 3,500 tigers left in the wild. Tiger numbers have diminished due to habitat loss by humans, hunting and the continued shooting by trophy hunters and illegal poaching for body parts for Chinese medicines.
