Global Tiger Day was launched during the last Chinese Year of the Tiger (2010), 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 (2022), the focus should be to double their global population, which at the time was estimated to be in the region of 3200.
Last year marked the halfway point in this ambitious plan; and while tigers have come roaring back in some areas, poachers and rampant habitat destruction are still threatening populations. We tackle this kind of 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. In Sumatra, your support has resulted in the lowest level of tiger snares being set since 2008. This Tiger Day 2018, when you give to wild tigers via WildCats Conservation Alliance, 100% of your donation will go to frontline projects making the biggest difference.
