Tiger landscapes are home not only to an incredible array of biodiversity but also to local communities who depend on this same land for their livelihood, culture, traditions and social existence. 

Tigers live in some of the most densely populated regions of the world and finding effective ways to partner with people living and working in these areas is vital for the long-term recovery of wild tigers.

On the ground examples in different tiger range countries have shown that communities are key to successful tiger conservation. The map below highlights some of the community partners that are engaged with tiger conservation across WWF landscapes.
