They are the biggest cats on our planet and need enough habitats to roam. On the other hand, we need to tackle illegal poaching on the ground and the broader issue of illegal wildlife trade to ensure tigers don't disappear before their habitats do.
We work with governments, partner organisations, local people across landscapes. Through a comprehensive approach, we can tackle threats from within and outside of landscapes, and ensure gains towards the goal of doubling wild tiger numbers by 2022 are for the long-term.
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.
