Your adoption will help fund tiger protection projects such as movement monitoring and reducing poaching, and will also help fund other vital work around the world. When you choose an animal adoption, you are supporting both your chosen animals as well as wider work to help bring our world back to life.
Your Adoption Really Helps
Animal adoptions like yours give a huge boost to our work. They not only help fund projects to work with local communities to monitor tiger movements, reduce poaching and help people to realise benefits from living in close proximity to wild tigers - but they also support our other vital work around the world.
Adopt a tiger and receive
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. There are estimated to be around 4,500 tigers in the wild.
Threats that tigers face
POACHING AND ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE
The parts of at least 110 tigers were seized in Asia annually between 2000-2015. This equates to over 2 tigers per week seized in illegal wildlife trade. Mainly killed for luxury products, using their skins and bones.
Gradually, tigers are being forced into small, scattered islands of remaining habitat. Tigers range has reduced by 95% since historical times.
HUMAN TIGER CONFLICT
As tiger range declines, they come closer and closer to people. This can lead to conflict as people protect their families and livestock from tigers.
LOSS OF PREY
Reduction in tiger prey, due to hunting and habitat deterioration, has a direct effect on wild tiger populations.
How We Can Help
We’re determined to help secure a viable future for wild tigers. Our goal is by 2034, wild tiger populations and distribution are increasing or stable in priority landscapes across their existing and historic range.
Your adoption and support will help us:
- 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 our other essential work around the world
Unlike many cats, tigers like water and they are excellent swimmers.
