Tigers are in danger with only around 3,900 wild Tigers left in the world.
The Tiger once ranged widely across Asia, from Turkey in the west to the eastern coast of Russia. Over the past 100 years, they have disappeared from southwest and central Asia, from two Indonesian islands (Java and Bali) and from large areas of southeast and eastern Asia. Shockingly, since the beginning of the 20th century, we have lost over 95% of the world’s wild Tiger population.
This Global Tiger Day, join us on a journey to protect them.
In 2010, the governments of 13 countries where wild Tigers roam decided that the business-as-usual approach was not enough. They came together and committed to TX2 – the most ambitious conservation goal set for a single species – to double the number of wild Tigers by 2022, the next Chinese Year of the Tiger.
Now, to see this goal through, we need your voice too. The goal of the day is to promote a global system for protecting the natural habitats of Tigers and to raise public awareness and support for Tiger conservation issues. You can get involved in the conversation around this important day on Twitter using the hashtags #WorldTigerDay or #InternationalTigerDay.
Last but not least, one of the most effective ways to actively aid Tiger conservation is to volunteer at various NGOs dedicated to wildlife protection. Offering your time and expertise to a wildlife conservation organisation is not only going to benefit the Tiger and its habitat (along with many other threatened species of fauna and flora), but might also give you an opportunity to be involved in field projects that could lead to adventures you won’t forget.
Join us on an iconic bucket list trip to India to see the Tiger in all its glory.
