World Tiger Day is celebrated every year across the world on the 29th of July to raise awareness for the conservation of these magnificent big cats.
Wild tiger populations have declined by around 95% since the beginning of the 20th century with an estimated 3,900 tigers remaining.
WWF is determined to help double the number of wild tigers to at least 6,000 by 2022 – the next Chinese year of the tiger. To achieve this, they are focusing on conservation in 13 priority landscapes, including areas in Nepal, India and Russia.
A tiger adoption with WWF offers a great way to help protect the future of these captivating creatures and their habitats. Your adoption and support will help WWF to:
- secure well-managed protected areas
- restore fragmented areas of habitat (wildlife corridors) so tiger populations can grow
- strengthen anti-poaching patrols in and around protected areas
- conduct camera trap surveys to be able to track population trends and guide conservation action
- fund other essential WWF work around the world
Sign up for a tiger adoption from just £3 per month and receive:
- A cuddly toy
- Regular updates from Wild World, Go Wild and Tiger.
- A bumper fact pack with bookmarks and stickers.
- A wonderful gift that will help protect the future of tigers and their habitats.
Free postage is offered for 3-10 day delivery, or order by 2pm for 2-3 day delivery at £3.79. For a last-minute gift, you can also download an adoption certificate to give or email on the day.
