Where we work
Wild tigers are found in different habitats across Asia. Their home range is restricted to the 13 Tiger Range Countries: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Russia, Thailand and VietNam. Our on-ground work is coordinated by local WWF offices in twelve of these countries with the exception of Bangladesh, where we work closely with partners.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, the world has lost over 95% of the wild tiger population.
In 2010, the governments of 13 countries where wild tigers roam decided that the business-as-usual approach was not enough. They came together and committed to TX2 - the most ambitious conservation goal set for a single species – to double wild tigers by 2022, the next Chinese Year of the Tiger.
WWF is a key driver of the TX2 goal and is putting its full force behind this ambitious global effort.
TX2 is possible. For the first time in over a century, wild tiger numbers have stopped declining and may even be on the rise.
