Tigers once lived across Asia, from eastern Turkey and the Caspian Sea south of the Tibetan plateau eastward to Manchuria and the Sea of Okhotsk. Tigers were also found in northern Iran, Afghanistan, the Indus valley of Pakistan, and the islands of Java and Bali.
Today, as a result of rampant poaching and unchecked habitat destruction, the tiger's range has shrunk by over 95%.
Incredibly adaptable, tigers can survive in vastly diverse habitats of extreme temperatures.
Tigers are the largest of all big cats in the world

Natural guardian of forests
Protecting a tiger means protecting its home range, which can cover up to 10,000 hectares of forests, providing clean air, fresh water, food and medicine that we need.
For the long-term survival of tigers in the wild, it isn’t just about the numbers. One of the biggest threats to tigers is habitat degradation and loss.
Two tigers each week
Poaching of wild tigers is strictly banned in all tiger range countries, but demand continues to fuel the illegal tiger trade. Parts of at least 2 tigers are seized by authorities each week on average since the year 2000.
Future of people and tigers
Wild tigers are found only in Asia, the most densely populated continent on Earth. Ensuring harmonious co-existence of people and wildlife is key to achieving our goal of doubling tigers by 2022.
Seeking critical connections
Connected landscapes are necessary for tigers to roam free and meet new mates. With over 11,000 km of planned infrastructure cutting across tiger landscapes, corridors and wildlife crossings have become ever more critical.
