Zero Poaching of Tigers

by World Wildlife Fund

Summary

Wild tiger numbers are at an all-time low. We have lost 97% of wild tigers in just over a century. Tigers may be one of the most revered animals, but they are also vulnerable to extinction. As few as 3,200 exist in the wild today.

Challenge

Every part of the tiger-from whisker to tail-is traded in illegal wildlife markets. Poaching is the most immediate threat to wild tigers. There are usually limited resources for guarding protected areas in the countries where tigers live. Even countries with strong enforcement of tiger protection laws fight a never-ending battle against poaching.

Solution

Support for patrols and camera traps will help support efforts to achieve zero poaching of tigers.

Long-Term Impact

This big cat is admired and feared in equal parts, by people around the world. If forests are emptied of every last tiger, all that will remain are distant legends and zoo sightings. WWF believes we can save wild tigers. We have set a bold, but acheiveable goal of Tx2: doubling the number of tigers in the wild by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger.
