About Roaring for Tigers

About this Tiger Roar Campaign

November 2010:

In the last 10 years we have lost nearly half of all our wild tigers.

Shot, trapped, poisoned, skinned, crushed and ultimately sold.

The scientists in the field are telling us we are very close to losing the most iconic species on our planet from the dwindling forests of their native lands.

Were we going to sit by and let this happen?

Not a chance.

Were we going to stand up and shout?

Not quite.

We stood up and ROAAAAARED!!!

It was in November 2010 that the Heads of Government from some of the 13 countries that still have wild Tigers in their forests were to come together for an historic meeting: The Tiger Summit.

It was at this meeting where possibly the best chance to secure the tiger's long-term survival was tobe decided.

To encourage these powerful people to make the right decisions and keep to their stated goal of doubling the number of wild tigers by 2022, the world stood up and ROARRRRED for the tigers.

You can see our colleagues at WWF in Indonesia Roaring for the tigers here:


Want to help? Want to join in?

You could add your own Roar in many different ways. As a soloist or together with your friends, family or colleagues.

You could upload a picture of you getting all "Roary". Or shoot some video, upload it to YouTube or Vimeo, and link it in. Or for those who wanted to keep it simple, you could upload your Roooooooar!!! as a simple text message.

Then you could search and vote for the Roars that you think are the best, scariest, funniest.

Everyone who submitted a Roar was counted in our petition that we will took to the Heads of Government when they met. We''ll also showed some of the best Roars throughout the Tiger Summit.

Now see how the world ROAAAARRRRED for the Tigers in 2010
