Save Tigers Now

A century ago there were 100,000 Tigers in the wild, today there are as few as 3,200. Join our global campaign with World Wildlife Fund to protect these majestic creatures from extinction.

“If we don’t take action now, one of the most iconic animals on our planet could be gone in just a few decades.  By saving tigers, we can also protect some of our last remaining ancient forests and improve the lives of indigenous communities."
