I decided to dedicate this years inktober mostly to endangered, extinct or enslaved animal species. In November I'll sell some of the originals to raise money for local animal shelters.
I'm on Day 08 already, but didn't have time to upload here so far. For a daily upload you can either follow my twitter or instagram. (Link in Bio)
Population: ca. 2500 worldwide
"The Bengal tiger is found primarily in India with smaller populations in Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, China and Myanmar. It is the most numerous of all tiger subspecies with more than 2,500 left in the wild. The creation of India’s tiger reserves in the 1970s helped to stabilize numbers, but poaching to meet a growing demand from Asia in recent years has once again put the Bengal tiger at risk. The mangroves of the Sundarbans—shared between Bangladesh and India—are the only mangrove forests where tigers are found. The Sundarbans are increasingly threatened by sea level rise as a result of climate change."
