Adopt a Tiger

Sadly, there are more tigers in captivity in the US than are left in the wild. There's now estimated to be around 3,900 wild tigers globally.

Each tiger has a unique set of stripes – like a fingerprint – and this helps us identify individuals in the wild. Tiger populations have declined by around 95% since the beginning of the 20th century. The tiger is officially classed as endangered by the IUCN. You can adopt a tiger for yourself or as a gift for a loved one.

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 3,900 tigers in the wild.



Tiger poaching fact


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 Silhouette


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.

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 double the number of wild tigers to at least 6,000 by 2022 – the Year of the Tiger. To achieve this, we’re focusing on conservation in 13 priority landscapes, including areas in Nepal, India and Russia. At the groundbreaking international Tiger Summit, which we helped to organise in 2010, governments from all 13 tiger range countries committed to this ambitious and visionary species conservation goal and created a global plan for tiger recovery.

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
