I want to help the tiger, what can I do?
Visit my "HELP THE TIGER" to the left. You can also visit the
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) webpage and see how you can contribute.

I'm doing a report and need info, can you help me out?
All the information you should need will either be in the "Current Situation" or the "General Information" links. If you need something specific,
e-mail me and I'll see if I can help.

I'd like to replicate some of your webpage on mine, can I?
All I ask is that you're VERY selective and take little. I also request that you give this webpage credit for whatever of it I did. Things that I specifically stated as coming from other webpages can be taken without giving this site credit. One final note: Please do not replicate ANYTHING from the "Stories from India" page. Also please keep in mind that in general, it isn't very useful to put something on the web that's already there.

I want own a tiger, can you point me in the right direction?
You're unfortunately missing the entire concept of this webpage and ecological organizations that want to preserve tigers. By trying to acquire a tiger, you create a market for tiger trade and ultimately harm the future wild tigers. Regardless if you're intention is to own a cub borne by tigers in capivity or not, you are still creating an atmosphere where they won't be left alone (which is the best way for them to thrive). You should also keep in mind that male tigers are three times the size of the world's strongest men and could kill a human within seconds if he felt like it. These are not domestic pets; and thinking that they are equivalant to a domestic animal is a big mistake. Furthemore, by keeping a tiger you disregard their instinct, bahaviors, preferences et cetera. If you truly cared for tigers (which I know you do), you should let them live in peace, where they're the happiest.

I have a comment/suggestion, are you open to it?
Definitely, this faq is an attempt for me to cut down on the repeativity of e-mails I receive, not to discourage people from contacting me. I generally reply to e-mails within three-four days. If you'd like to contact me for whatever reason, feel free.

I want to help wild tigers but don't want to donate money, what can I do?
Since wild tigers only reside in Asia, the most logical way for someone in the western hemisphere to help is to donate money. But there are obviously other ways. In my 'Help the Tiger' there's a link to a webpage where you can start your own petition to save the tigers. Another option (that VERY FEW take) is to actually travel to Asia and physically donate your time to the preservation efforts.
You can also 'adopt' a tiger through the World Wildlife Fund, but that again takes a lot of money. Also, you can periodically click on my banner (not the pop-up one) which raises money ONLY for the wild Bengal tigers in the Melghat Tiger Preserve.

How often do you update your site?
I try to have an update every eight to ten weeks; but lately that hasn't been occurring due to other responsibilities. I try to go no more than a couple of months before adding to it.

I'm having trouble downloading some of the multimedia, what's going on?
With certain file types (including .zip, .avi, .mov, etc.), Tripod's server takes you to another page before you can download the file. If you're using Getright or Gozilla, I would suggest disabling them.

How can we save the tiger?
The quickest answer to this question is to go to the "Tiger Threats" page. To save the tiger, we need to address the issues presented on this page. Since there is no single answer to the threats listed on the page, they're are several answers. Some of the more logical answers are inherent in the page.
