I Don’t Want To Live In A World Without Tigers
Acrylic on canvas.
Tigers are my all-time favorite animal. I have always identified with the tiger.
Tigers are faced with ever dwindling habitat and human encroachment, as well as illegal poaching driven by global demand for the illegal trade of tigers and their parts.
Sadly, there are more tigers held in captivity than there are left in the wild. In fact, it is estimated that there are approximately 5,000 tigers living in captivity in the United States alone (only about 6% of these in accredited AZA zoo facilities) versus about 3,900 that live in the wild.
