What We Do
Working across boundaries to go beyond doubling

WWF adopts a strategic, long-term approach towards global tiger recovery – working across entire landscapes through transboundary collaboration. Our mandate towards achieving TX2 goes beyond just doubling tiger numbers. Guided by systemic approaches, our key programmes aim to create a viable future for wild tigers and people.

Engage Local Communities

We believe that tiger conservation should be people-centred. Engaging local communities as key stakeholders is critical for a viable future for people and nature, and in the global mission to achieve TX2.

Break the Trade Chains

Estimated to be worth over US$20 billion each year, the illegal wildlife trade fuels a global poaching crisis. Together with TRAFFIC, WWF works to disrupt illegal trade routes, reduce demand for tiger parts, and phase out tiger farms that feed the illegal tiger trade.

For wild tigers to roam free, we aim to achieve Zero Poaching in priority tiger landscapes, to the extent that - over a set period of time - tiger populations are no longer impacted by poaching.

Manage Human Wildlife Conflict

Wild tigers are found only in Asia, where more people live than anywhere else on Earth. To ensure a viable future for people and tigers, WWF is pioneering the SAFE Systems Approach to minimise and manage human-wildlife conflict.
