WWF is the global environmental charity, and they’re bringing our world back to life. With nature in freefall, they’re urgently tackling the underlying causes that are driving the decline, especially the food system and climate change. And they’re nding solutions so future generations have a world with thriving habitats and wildlife.
It’s a huge challenge, but there is hope. WWF is working globally with governments, companies, communities, and others who have the will to act and the power to transform our world. They’re using their ground-breaking scienti c research, their global in uence, and the backing of their many supporters to make sure the natural world’s vital signs are recovered by 2030.
Tigers can be found in isolated forests and grasslands throughout Asia. Their habitat is wide ranging from evergreen and monsoon forests, to mixed coniferous-deciduous woodlands and mangrove swamps.
Tigers are widely distributed across India, from the alpine Himalayas to the southern
Western Ghats and from Rajasthan to north-east India. India is home to over 60% of the world’s wild tigers.
Each tiger has a unique set of stripes, like a fingerprint, and this helps us identify individuals in the wild.
Unlike many cats, tigers like water, and they are excellent swimmers. There are estimated to be around 3,900 tigers in the wild.
Sadly, there are more tigers in captivity in the US than are left in the wild. Tiger populations have declined by around 95% since the beginning of the 20th century.
What is the WWF doing?
Just 10 years ago, wild tigers were heading towards extinction.
Thankfully, though, things have started to turn around. In 2010, the governments of all 13 tiger range countries came together at the world’s first ever global tiger summit and agreed on a “TX2” commitment to double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next Chinese Year of the Tiger. A global recovery plan followed, and WWF, together with individuals, businesses, communities, governments, and other conservation partners, has worked tirelessly to turn this bold and ambitious conservation goal into reality.
Tigers have since made an astonishing comeback in several countries, including India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Russia. There have been similar stories of success in the transboundary area. While these successes are incredible, WWF continues 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.
