Adopt a tiger »

In the past 100 years, wild tiger numbers have plummeted by around 95%, to as few as 3,200. Help us protect the future of the world's largest big cat.

How you're helping the tigers

  • Restoring fragmented areas of habitat so tigers can move between them
  • Strengthening anti-poaching patrols around nature reserves
  • Establishing programmes to increase prey numbers
  • Reducing poaching and illegal trade of live tigers and tiger parts
  • Your support will also help fund our other essential work around the world

You can adopt Kamrita, a female Bengal tiger. Kamrita is one of the last 150 Bengal tigers left in Nepal. Kamrita represents all the tigers we help.

More about tigers

There are six living sub-species of tiger; the Amur (Siberian), Bengal (Indian), Indo-Chinese, Malayan, Sumatran and South China.Three other sub-species, the Bali, Caspian and Javan, are now extinct.

Location:From India to south-eastern China and from the Russian Far East to Sumatra, Indonesia

Habitat:Wide ranging - from evergreen and monsoon forests, to mixed coniferous-deciduous woodlands, and mangrove swamps

Wild population: As few as 3,200

The threats to tigers:

  • Poaching for skins and body parts used in traditional Asian medicines
  • In some areas, climate change also puts pressure on the tiger's environment. Gradually, tigers are being forced into small, scattered islands of remaining habitat, where they are more vulnerable to events such as fire.
  • Habitat loss due to farming, forest clearance for the timber trade and human development
  • Decline in natural prey numbers
  • Conflict with humans

How your adoption can help:

  • £60 (or £5 a month) could restore one hectare of grassland to increase numbers of tiger prey in Nepal’s Terai Arc
  • £100 (or £8.50 a month) could pay for a comprehensive medical kit for staff in Dudwha National Park in India
  • £200 (or £16 a month) could pay for the development of a Bio-Gas plant in a local Himalayan community. Bio-gas plants produce energy from rotting waste, reducing the need for the local people to cut down trees and therefore helping to maintain the tigers habitat.

Kamrita

The word Kamrita comes from the region of the wildlife reserve where she’s most often spotted – the Amrite area.

She is a female Bengal tiger living in Chitwan National Park in southern Nepal. She is around 7-8 years old, and has been photographed on several occasions with two young cubs.

Kamrita represents all the tigers we help.

All our tiger adopters ‘adopt’ Kamrita so that we can share her ongoing story with you. We hope that by following Kamrita’s progress, you can experience the challenges and success involved in conserving this most charismatic of big cats.
