WWF and Tigers

We have lost 97% of our wild tigers in just over a century. With as few as 3,200 remaining, action is needed to increase and strengthen their habitat and protect the species from major threats such as poaching. WWF works with the 13 tiger countries to create a future for wild tigers.

2013 In Review



2013 was a landmark year for tiger conservation. Huge gains were made in protection, monitoring and legislation across the tigers range - here are a few of the major highlights.
The Tigers Alive Initiative is the Global Initiative focused on the conservation of wild tigers across their native range. The Initiative works with WWF country offices (links at right) and partners to magnify the impacts of WWF’s tiger work from the ground to the political-level. The Initiative works in 12 large landscapes which stretch across the 13 tiger range countries.
