Tigers are in jeopardy. Conservation struggles in many ways. The same goes for law enforcement.

Two elements are vital in creating better conditions for tigers, in the wild and in captivity. One is politics. Politicians must be able to create the funds for conservation and law enforcement.  The management of the important elements in saving tigers is also one of the conditions. Like conservation, awareness and law enforcement.

Below you can find articles about these conditions. Also other vital subjects will be highlighted, like gender equality matters.

Politics are vital, although nobody wants to hear this. But without political support or back-up all conservation measures to be taken can’t be seen as structural and sustainable. Politicians must be aware of the situation of nature, must have the vision to lay the foundation of nature conservation and must provide the funds for making it possible.

Management seems a buzz word. But the importance of good management is crucial for results. We need to have better management in wildlife conservation, just as well as we need better management in law enforcement. 

According to the United Nations gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. 

There has been progress over the last decades: More girls are going to school, fewer girls are forced into early marriage, more women are serving in parliament and positions of leadership, and laws are being reformed to advance gender equality. 

Despite these gains, many challenges remain: discriminatory laws and social norms remain pervasive, women continue to be underrepresented at all levels of political leadership, and 1 in 5 women and girls between the ages of 15 and 49 report experiencing physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner within a 12-month period.

Wildlife conservation is dominated by men. The few women that work in conservation are often experiencing physical, sexual or mental violence within their working situation.

Laws give direction to keep society running. Without laws countries would end up like countries like Myanmar, Somalia, Iraq. Wildlife conservation can only exist when countries have strong laws that prevent people from poaching, burning forests or bribe officials for infrastructural projects.
