WWF's work on tiger conservation goes beyond site-based protection to tackle threats coming from within and outside of tiger landscapes. This is to ensure any gains made towards our goal of doubling wild tiger numbers by 2022 is for the long-term.
From strengthening frontline defense and management of tiger habitats, conducting community awareness programs and promoting sustainable livelihoods to dealing with the illegal wildlife trade and sustaining political will, our main pillars of work focuses on targeting the problem at the roots.
We take a holistic view to protecting wild tigers. Instead of focusing only on specific tiger habitats, we define 14 vast and connected landscapes - some of them cutting across countries. Put together, these landscapes provide us with a global canvas for a blueprint towards global tiger recovery.
In each of these landscapes, WWF has selected priority sites based on the potential for tiger populations to thrive, breed and recover. Our on-ground efforts are present in more than 200 of these sites.
