its a shame that this kind of work is necessary, but its fantastic that there are people who are passionate and driven. Keep up the great work - hope to do some volunteer work soon.

Please keep up the MOST HONOURED WORK, it is a dangerous task and wish it possible to join you there in the fight. Remember on difficult days you have millions of people behind you and ONE DAY those that are MISUSING THE TIGER will FINALLY SEE it represents POWER and MONEY ALIVE than extinct.

It's good to know there are people who still care about our planet, who can do what I cannot to protect wildlife.

Active and positive steps should be taken to ban poaching.

Tigers have been or our planet for as long as we have. now in this century other humans are using dominance to capture these truley amazing animals. Its upseting but what your doing is bringing back pride :)

By all means the best charity I've ever given (and still give) money to. It protects one of the most beautiful animals on this planet and at the same time gives jobs to people who need it.

I'll even donate extra slippery bars of soap for poachers in prison, if given the chance.

I'm so glad that something is being done about this, action needs to be taken to tackle this issue and you guys are doing it. Thank you so much, you're a true inspiration.

Keep up the great work you're doing. Your tiger patrols are vital to stop these beautiful animals from becoming extinct.

I can't believe that in today's society a small minority of people want to harm this truely beautiful animal. I wish that I could do more to help your amazing efforts to protect these big cats. Thank you & please, please continue the fight....

I am so happy and gratefull that you brave people that are standing up to the poachers are doing this, because they are people who don't think of other right's and animals too, they don't care, unlike heartful people like you guys, please keep on going, let these phenomonal creatures survive! Go WWF

I recently read a book by Michael morpurgo called running wild, and there is a tiger that is killed by poachers. If. Real people are saving real tigers, they have all my support.

Thank you for all the work you do on behalf of tigers. We're in freezing cold London, but we hope that our support, both financial and personal, will help you save the tiger and protect its environment. We will probably never meet, but you are our heroes. Stay safe and good luck.

We’ve removed a couple of offensive comments from this page but we’d love to hear more of your messages of support for the anti-poaching patrols, which after all is the reason this page is here!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone in the anti-poaching team - I wish I could do more for them. Keep up the good and important work. Tigers are the most magical creatures - I have been lucky enough to see some in the wild and it's a much better place for them to be.
Posted by Susan Shannon on 25/01/10 17:29
Thankfully there are people like yourselves who are willing to do such a difficult and fantastic job in helping to protect such a beautiful and vital animal. I wish I could do more but I know our donations are crucial. Here's to a successful year! Thankyou so much!

Dear Anti-poaching Team
It is a sad fact that there are some who believe that animals are there just to serve them and hence exploit them. It is therefore heartening that there are brave people like you who are showing them the error of their ways. If I only could, I'll be there with you. Keep up

I saw two young tigers in Ranthambore nearly 20 years
ago.They were probably poached shortly afterwards.
So the brave anti-poaching patrols have my great
admiration.
Posted by Karen Hawkes on 22/01/10 18:15
Tigers have been pushed to extinction, not from natural selection, but from unnecessary human intervention. Keep up the fabulous work WWF. The anti-poachers are doing a dangerous job and should be applauded. The moral majority of the planet are supporting you all the way.

i adopt a tiger and a leopard from wwf already, i wish i could do more,i find it very sad that humans take great pleasure in hurting any animal, we should be able to live in peace with all animals on the planet, please keep up the good work, pity you cannot be a bit harder on poachers to stop them.

I am so proud of WWF. They help so many animals, When I am older i want to be like you. I hope the tigers will not be extinct, I find it horrible that people want to kill them!:(
Posted by Tom Brand on 19/01/10 16:52
A world without creatures like tigers in would be a sad world indeed. They are on the brink of extinction but with more of your hard work and dedication I'm sure we will succeed.

Your dedication to protect tigers in THEIR nature habitat is truly appriecated. We might be miles away but we want these beautiful creatures will continue to survive and hopefully thrive. A big thankyou!

Thank you to all you brave people who are on the front-line in the fight against the despicable poachers who seem intent on wiping out these magnificent cats. The world would be a poorer place without this beautiful animal. God bless you for your bravery and dedication.

Posted by Robbie McMillan on 19/01/10 10:57
Like many others on here I was truly shocked at the numbers of wild tigers left in this world. These magnificent, regal cats should be left in peace. Many thanks to everyone on the front line who are helping these beautiful creatures

Thank you for your courage. Love & Peace from Roisin.

I cannot understand why a human being would kill such graceful creatures as the Tiger. The world would be a poorer place without them and our children robbed of the chance to see nature at its most magnificent. We should totally RESPECT their space and live in harmony with them in our world
Posted by James Watson on 18/01/10 23:52
My donation, along with money given by other tiger lovers, will hopefully make a difference. The greatest animal on Earth cannot be allowed to die out. If we're powerless to stop it, it would be the most apt damnation of our race. On a more positive note: THANK YOU to the tiger conservationists!
Posted by Colette Reddington on 18/01/10 22:53
No matter how hard I try I just cannot get my head around why a human being would kill such graceful creatures as the Tiger. We should totally RESPECT their space and live in harmony with them in our world. Thanks to the help of the kind people trying to make this happen.

In the words of Winston Churchill 'Never has so much been owed to so few, by so many'. With the same courage he showed, the anti-poaching teams are our greatest hope for the survival of one of our most magnificent and beautiful of cats. Their gift to our well-being is their existance.
Posted by Mike Denison on 18/01/10 20:40
Thank you for the selfless acts of kindness and care. Every creature desrves to exist in its own way, what right do we have to decide what is more important in the world. Tigers are a natural deign of the world. Thank YOU!!
Posted by Chris Roughley on 18/01/10 20:39
I was lucky enough to see a wild Tiger in November in Ranthambore, India. The people working to keep the last few of these most majestic of animals alive are truely heroic. Thankyou for making my sighting possible.
Posted by Cindy on 18/01/10 20:05
Well done to all those involved, without their intervention animals all over the world would suffer. What a magnicent job they do. This planet belongs to all not just us humans.
Posted by Wendy Beyda on 18/01/10 19:40
Thank you to all of the anti poaching patrols for trying to keep our endangered species safe. Tigers are just beautiful and majestic creatures, how anyone can kill them still puzzles me. One day I would love to see a tiger in the wild.
Posted by Dominic Ireland on 18/01/10 19:34

From a photographer's point of view, the tiger is one of the most beautiful, majestic and noble animals to walk the face of the earth. It is not only because people like to take pictures, the tigers simply deserve the right to live. Please safeguard them!
