Once 100,000 strong, the world’s wild tiger population dipped to an estimated 3,200 tigers by 2010, as poaching, habitat loss, and conflict with humans threatened to erase this majestic cat from its historic range. WWF is proud to be working with government and organizational partners to double the tiger population by 2022. While this is a long-term project, we have successes along the way that serve as important milestones of progress – successes that we’d like to share with individuals like you who are helping to make it possible.
Working with tiger range nations:
In September, Kazakhstan announced plans to reintroduce tigers
In March, Bhutan announced its national zero poaching strategy
Ending poaching and the tiger trade:
More than 100 sites across Asia are now using technology to monitor poaching and wildlife crime
Strengthening support for rangers:
The ground-breaking Training Guidelines for Anti-Poaching Field Rangers released in 2016 have been widely circulated and now translated into Hindi, French, Chinese, Arabic, and Spanish
Monitoring tiger populations:
Camera traps in Thailand indicate that adult female tiger numbers are increasing by 25 percent per year on average, and cub numbers have doubled since the last survey.
In the face of tremendous threats to wild tigers’ survival, your support is helping to reverse the course for these majestic cats and secure a brighter future for tigers and the many other species that share their habitat. Your commitment makes a difference in our work and sets an inspiring example that together, change is possible.
