The Tiger is one of the most beautiful and powerful animals from the earth, inspiring awe in cultures around the world, but its value on the black market makes it an attractive target for poachers.
In the book ‘Tigers Forever,’ photographer Steve Winter and writer Sharon Guynup present stunning images of these majestic creatures and lay out the challenges faced by tigers in today’s world, including degradation of their natural habitat. The book also highlights the work of intentional organizations, government groups and local individuals who devote their energies to preserving big cats.
To look upon the beautiful pictures taken by Winter while reading the words penned by Guynup, one is struck by an affection for these wonders of nature and a desire to aid the efforts for their conservation.
For more information on how to do so, visit the website of Panthera, a leading big cat conservation group: panthera.org. They tweet at @pantheracats.
