Tigers are the largest cat on earth. Heavily-muscled forelimbs, retractable claws, powerful jaws, sharp teeth and acute senses make them awesome hunters.
Tiger populations are on the brink of extinction in many countries in south east Asia and are threatened by habitat loss. Throughout their range tigers find themselves in conflict with farmers that persecute them for killing their livestock.
Tigers are exploited in tiger farms due to demand for skins as luxury rugs, and for their bones which are used to make traditional medicines.
Help care for a wild animal and you'll receive an exclusive adoption pack containing a soft toy, animal story, species fact sheet, certificate and glossy photo. Plus, you'll also receive our Adopt magazine twice a year with updates on all our wildlife adoptions – perfect for animal lovers.
Funds from your adoption will help care for rescued tigers at our sanctuaries in India and Cambodia. You will also be helping support our network of conservationists working in seven tiger reserves in Central India, implementing grassroots community conservation activities and preventing conflict between people and tigers. You can make a difference to a wild animal by adopting Gopal below.
Gopal was captured by authorities after coming into conflict with people when he was found preying on their cattle. Due to this conflict Gopal will never be released back to the wild.
He now lives at Born Free’s tiger sanctuary in Bannerghatta National Park, southern India, which provides a natural forest habitat for rescued tigers in a section of the park closed to visitors.
Your adoption will help fund Gopal’s lifetime care.
