Why only tigers? What about peacocks?

Home/Nature/Why only tigers? What about peacocks?

Tiger continues to be the cynosure of the government’s conservationist efforts. Is it because tiger is our national animal? If so, what about peacock, the national bird? The rampant killing of this beautiful bird continues unabated for its feathers in India. Similarly, there are many species that are on the verge of extinction or endangered and also as important as tigers for the balance of ecosystems. But other animals such as elephants, musk deer, Tibetan antelope, rhinoceros, red panda, Ganges river dolphin, etc., are not getting equal attention and care. (Courtesy: Avilash Roul, The Hindu)
