ADOPT A TIGER

As the largest cat on earth, the tiger is instantly recognisable with its red-orange fur and black stripes as unique to each animal as human fingerprints. With powerful, muscular bodies, retractable claws and acute senses, tigers are great predators able to reach impressive speeds in short bursts to catch prey.

Over the last century, wild tiger numbers have plummeted from 100,000 to an estimated 4,000, accompanied by a loss of more than 93% of tiger habitat range, according to the IUCN Red List. Tigers now stand on the very brink of extinction in many countries across south east Asia.

Conflict with farmers, poaching, habitat destruction and exploitation in captive tiger farms are some of the reasons why this species is under threat.

ISSUES AFFECTING TIGERS TODAY

Listed as Endangered according to the IUCN, three tiger sub-species have already become extinct, leaving six sub-species under threat. Once free to roam over vast ranges, habitat destruction has left scattered populations over 13 countries. As a result, tigers and farmers are driven ever closer together, with farmers killing tigers that prey on their livestock for food.

Poaching and the illegal trade in tiger body parts for Asian medicine have also had a devastating impact. Fuelling the demand, tiger farms in China and Southeast Asia breed captive animals for trade which undermines efforts to stop the practice and causes extreme suffering to the tigers held captive.

Tigers continue to be held in captivity for entertainment, found in zoos and circuses across the globe, as well as in private collections. These living conditions deny them the space and natural habitat they deserve, and cause great concern for animal welfare.

ADOPTING A TIGER WILL HAVE A MASSIVE IMPACT

Funds from your adoption will help care for rescued tigers at our sanctuary in India and run initiatives to promote co-existence and help prevent human-wildlife conflict.

With your help, we can work towards a secure future for the wild tiger population and bring them back from the brink.

It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.Sir David Attenborough
