Summary

In the last 100 years, tigers have lost 96% of their historical range with wild populations estimated to be as few as 3,500. By funding ground-based tiger conservation initiatives across Asia, David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is fighting from grass roots to the world-stage to protect this iconic species and give it the best possible chance of survival in the wild.

Challenge

At the beginning of the 20th century, nine subspecies of tiger roamed the Asian wilderness, with estimated populations of over 100,000. Shockingly, in less than 100 years, tigers have lost 96% of their population and three of their sub species as a result of the illegal wildlife trade, human-wildlife conflict and habitat loss.

Solution

Through law enforcement programmes, undercover investigations and governmental lobbying initiatives, DSWF fights to protect tigers in their natural habitat. The Foundation also engages with local communities to educate and raise awareness of the threats facing wild tigers and how to find long term sustainable solutions to the benefit of both people and wildlife.

Long-Term Impact

By fostering a real understanding of the benefits that protecting tigers can have, DSWF aspire to create a sustainable future where both wildlife and people can live in harmony.
