WWF Tigers Alive Initiative
WWF is working with tiger range country governments to double wild tiger numbers – this goal is called TX2.
WHERE ARE TIGERS?
TX2The TX2 goal was established in 2010, the last year of the tiger, at the Tiger Summit in St Petersburg. Here all 13 tiger range countries committed to the most ambitious and visionary conservation goal ever set – to double wild tigers numbers by 2022, the next year of the tiger.
To drive TX2 forward the WWF Tigers Alive Initiative was established - a global tiger conservation programme spanning the entire WWF network.
WWF Tigers Alive Initiative is working with tiger range governments to:
- Drive political momentum to ensure tigers remain a top priority for world leaders
- Professionalize wildlife protection by training rangers, developing conservation standards (CA|TS) and technology (SMART) to achieve Zero Poaching
- Tackle the illegal wildlife trade through our partnership with TRAFFIC
- Focus efforts in key tiger landscapes
- Ensure there is space for both tigers and people in the future
