“In the Forests of the night” 3000 Wild Tigers Remain

‘Bang!” Siberian Tiger plate back with gold inscription and plate front

Two weeks ago I wrote the following inscription on the back of one of my Siberian Tiger plates “Bang!”, for Save Wild Tigers event of the year, ‘Inspire’, Kuala Lumpur, October 2014,

“Fewer than 3,200 wild tigers remain, lets inspire a generation and reverse the decline”.

Today sadly, the official number of tigers in the wild just released, stands at only 3000.

The clock is ticking and ticking fast, but there’s still time to save the tiger.  To join the fight back and help keep the tiger “burning bright” visit www.savewildtigers.org

More information about ‘Inspire’, Kuala Lumpur coming soon.

  1. Sad to hear of the loss of 200 tigers in so short a time. I have also been watching about the eventual demise of elephants on TV, if poaching continues at the same rate. Tragic to think that one day, only visitors to zoos will be able to see all these magnificent animals.
    As always, I looked in enlargement at your excellent work on the plate. I can even get the expressions on the soldiers’ faces, and count the hairs on the tiger’s head.
    Great work Jane, and for a worthwhile cause too. Good luck with it.
    Very best wishes from Norfolk, Pete. x

    • Yes, sadly not just elephants, but rhinos and even lions are now under threat. Keeping trying to reverse the threats they face in the wild is the way forward. Thank you as always for kind comments Pete, best wishes as always from the NE, Jane x
