Wild for Life on #TigerDay
Tigers are at critical risk of extinction, with fewer than 4,000 left in the wild. In the last century, the tiger population has declined by 97%.
The greatest risk to big cats comes from criminals who control a lucrative illegal trade.
Tigers are a symbol of the health of the forests they inhabit. These forests secure water, mitigate climate change, and provide a host of natural resources required for healthy human populations.
On July 29th we celebrate Global #TigerDay. The United Nations is asking the public to join the Wild for Life campaign to make a personal impact.
To make a difference on Tiger Day, give your name to change the game. Morph into a tiger via the link in our bio to show the world that wildlife crime is personal. Your actions can be the difference in ensuring the survival of these majestic creatures.
