Do the right thing for tigers

Celebrate Global Tiger Day 2021 to keep conserving nature high on all our agendas.

 Wild tigers have a crucial place in Asian landscapes and biodiversity as they can be an indicator of the state of habitats and when we protect them, tigers also protect the balanced ecosystem across its range. As much of the world is still in crisis from the coronavirus pandemic, we must do all we can to protect the natural environment.

Evidence is showing that given the correct environment, tiger populations can increase. With the use of science and technology, best practice,  involvement of local people and investment, conservation actions are having a positive impact.  

Please do the right thing and donate to WildCats Conservation Alliance. 

  • With the right protection, wild tiger populations recover
  • With the right habitat, wild tigers and prey thrive
  • With the right help, wildlife and people can live together in the same landscape

There are fewer than 5000 wild tigers alive in their natural habitat.

Together we can give wild tigers the right future.

What we do

WildCats Conservation Alliance is contributing to the stabilisation and growth of tiger numbers in protected areas in China, Russia, Nepal and Sumatra, and contributing towards stabilising the population of Indochinese tigers in Thailand.

WildCats funds projects that tackle wildlife crime, by training and supporting Anti-Poaching Units so that they can initiate ‘Law Enforcement’ activities, which reduce the poaching of tigers and their prey in protected areas and buffer zones. Anti-poaching units combat all forms of poaching and other threats including illegal land clearance and encroachment. In Sumatra, your donations have resulted in the lowest level of tiger snares being set since 2008.*1 In Russia, China, Nepal and Thailand surveying tigers and their prey, is building a knowledge bank that informs conservation planning. In Nepal where tiger numbers are increasing*2, community involvement in decision-making decreases human-tiger conflict.

We have yet to fully understand the long term impacts that coronavirus is having on endangered wildlife across the world, and for tigers specifically. In some regions, tigers have benefited from a lack of human activity but in many areas, rural poverty and a lack of tourism has driven villagers into the forests for food, fuel, or livelihoods. Protected areas have been hit by budget cuts and staff by welfare issues. *3

Help us to keep rangers and scientists working for wildlife. Please support Tiger Day 2021!

What is Global Tiger Day?

During the last Year of the Tiger (2010), Global Tiger Day was launched by leaders of the 13 tiger range countries and NGOs working to protect these beautiful animals from extinction.  Together, these advocates for wild tigers decided that by the next Year of the Tiger, the focus should be to double their global population, which at the time was estimated to be in the region of 3200. This is the time to celebrate the achievements so far.

The next Global Year of the Tiger begins in 2022. Help us to maintain momentum to reach this goal.
