The WWF Tigers Alive Initiative

The wild tiger population has dropped 97% over the last hundred years. With as few as 3,200 wild tigers left, bold and immediate action is needed to protect those that remain.

WWF is working with tiger range country governments to double wild tiger numbers – this goal is called Tx2.

TX2

The 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 achieve Tx2 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
  • Monitor tiger conservation progress, identify Tx2 sites – where conditions are optimal for doubling tigers numbers and investigate the feasibility of reintroduction into certain areas
  • Ensure there is space for both tigers and people through sustainable infrastructure planning and human-tiger conflict mitigation
