This Global Tiger Day, learn more about this critically endangered species and what you can do to help restore the roar of tigers to the wild.
Across their range, tigers are found in amazingly diverse habitats including the harsh, cold northern climates of Russia and China, the grasslands and savannas of India and Nepal, the tropical forests of Sumatra and Thailand and even the mangrove swamps of Bangladesh and India.
It is estimated that there are less than 4,000 tigers left in the wild. Tigers used to have a far greater range and a much larger population, but their numbers have fallen significantly in the last 100 years and 93% of their historical habitat has disappeared primarily because of expanding human activity.
Across their range, tigers are facing unrelenting pressures from habitat loss, the illegal wildlife trade, tiger farming, human-wildlife conflict and climate change.
So far, we have raised over £4.5 million pounds to combat these threats. Watch the video below to see how these funds have helped restore the roar of tigers to the wild.
This Global Tiger Day, we’d like to invite you to help us support the conservation of this majestic species. There are loads of ways to get involved, from learning more about these fierce felines to ordering our custom-designed, tiger-inspired, products!
