Why Save Tigers

FRESH WATER, CLEAN AIR, JOBS & MORE

From the world’s largest mangrove forests in the Sundarbans, to the snowy mountains up in Northeast China and Russia, protecting wild tigers and their natural homes provides benefits for thousands of species and millions of people.

As top predators, wild tigers play an important role in maintaining the harmony of our ecosystem. By preying on herbivores, tigers help to keep the balance between the prey animals and the forest vegetation which they feed upon.

Go beyond the stripes with us and find out how saving tigers, can save so much more.

SAVING BIODIVERSITY TREASURE TROVES

Tigers live in some of the most important but also most highly threatened habitats on the planet, where many of Asia's most exceptional species thrive. 

In Sumatra, dense tropical forests form the only habitat in the world where tigers are found to live alongside orangutans, rhinos and elephants. Protecting tiger landscapes not only helps to protect these majestic big cats, but also thousands of other species.

Yet,
tigers are endangered.

Left with just 5% of the range where they used to roam, tigers are losing their homes to deforestation, infrastructure and other human disturbances, forcing theM into rapidly diminishing pockets of nature. With only 3,900 left in the wild, every tiger counts.
