Tiger Population on the Rise

Friday, September 20th, 2013

With fewer than approximately 2000 tigers left worldwide and 60% of them in India, it isn’t easy finding good news about the future of tigers. But in a survey that was conducted across a 600-mile stretch of land in Nepal and throughout India, it was found that the wild tiger population was up to 198 since 2009, a 63% increase.

Although the South Asian governments have committed to doubling the tiger population by 2022, the animals still continue to decline in numbers from poaching and habitat loss.

The largest population increase was found in the south-western Bardia national park where the tiger population rose from 18 in 2009 to 50 in 2013.

Congratulations to India on their goal of increasing the tiger population and on seeing a significant increase over the four years!

Eye Help Animals is committed to saving wildlife around the world. Let’s continue to witness increases in wildlife populations for many of the endangered animals and join us in “Saving Wildlife Together”.

Top 7 Endangered Animals

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

A list that I recently found on the Pure Travel website listed the Top 7 most endangered animals on earth. They are:

Rhinoceros
Gorilla
Polar Bear
Leopard
Marine Turtles
Orangutan
Giant Panda

Although there are several sub-species among these seven, many of the sub-species are endangered.  Basically, there is no single species that does not have at least one sub-species that qualifies as endangered.

Currently, Eye Help Animals supports the Gorilla, Orangutan, Giant Panda, and Polar Bear. Our third collection will be coming out soon and will include the Rhinoceros, Leatherback Turtle, and Snow Leopard.

Our goal at Eye Help Animals is to support all wildlife – our third collection is focused on saving many of our endangered species.  Look for our 3rd Wildlife Eye collection coming in 2013!

Marines Save Endangered Animals!

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Ooh-rah! According to DVIDS- Seven Marines are responsible for building an enclosure that will house six- eight Sonoran Pronghorned antelope in Yuma, AZ. The Marines from the Range Maintenance, assisted biologists from the Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, the U.S. Army’s Yuma Proving Ground and the Arizona Department of Game and Fish, build an enclosure on the Barry M. Goldwater Range that will be used to temporarily house the Sonoran Pronghorn antelope being moved to the area. There are only approximately 100 Sonoran Pronghorned antelope remaining in the North America region.
