Easy Tiger

This print champions the majestic tiger - one of the most loved but most endangered animals on earth. The design highlights their latest fight against climate change and rising sea levels which is becoming more and more of a threat to their existence.

The plight of the incredible tiger is one of the most well known stories of a species facing extinction. Whether that’s decades of deforestation or persistent poaching from the illegal wildlife trade, most of us are aware of this issue.

That said, thanks to incredible conservation efforts worldwide tiger numbers are actually on the rise. Unfortunately, so too are sea levels. 

Due to climate change, rising sea levels represent one of the greatest future challenges for some species of tiger. Those that prefer to dwell in low lying coastal areas, like the famous Bengal Tiger, are now facing a new fight.

The mangrove forests of the Sundarbans region between India and Bangladesh face a growing impact of flooding. 70% of the land is just a few feet above sea level. And research suggests that, despite being home to the largest population of Bengal tigers in the world, the remaining tiger habitats in the region could be completely wiped out by 2070.

These encroaching waters make the survival of wild tigers increasingly difficult. Although teeming with rich biodiversity, rising sea levels and higher salt levels are killing the region’s Sundri trees, thus shrinking the tigers’ habitat and causing scarcity of fresh water.

This forces tigers to move to higher ground, which of course brings them in closer contact with humans.

As tigers venture closer to human populations in search of food, the chance of conflict between them and people increases. Putting communities at the centre of tiger conservation efforts is essential to building a future where wildlife can live harmoniously alongside people.

Luckily, many tiger conservation efforts are in place and there is support to scale successful initiatives.

One key element to their success is connecting tigers across borders. Countries that have seen an increase in tiger numbers are also countries that have worked hard to connect their tiger habitat and allow tigers to move freely and safely across landscapes. Collaboration and the development of protected wildlife corridors helps to secure routes for tigers moving across borders.

Talk about it. Word of mouth is powerful and the more these subjects are spoken about, the higher up on the agenda they will become.
