Global Tiger Day is celebrated across the world in recognition of the animal regularly voted the public’s favorite animal. Despite this, the Tiger is endangered and under threat of extinction from habitat destruction and poaching.
One hundred years ago there were 100,000 wild tigers, now there are less than 4000 tigers left in the wild. In the last century Asia’s wild tiger range has shrunk by 93%. Shockingly 40% of that decline has happened in the past ten years.
More must be done to keep them alive and to work with local people and empower them to reduce conflict, live alongside these animals and to preserve what habitat is left against the growing tide of population growth.
On this day please try and support all those that help to keep this beautiful animal alive and to preserve them for future generations. I have had a lifelong love of the Tiger and to think children growing up in the future may not be able to see them in the wild fill’s me with great sadness.
I’ve traveled to India since 2009 in search of Tigers, during that time I’ve been extremely lucky to have had some incredible encounters with these beautiful big cats. Over that time I’ve also ran my own photography tours there working with the best, local people to help all of my clients achieve their dream of seeing a wild Tiger.
I’m hoping to be back their next April with my two week, back to back tours. A number of places have been reserved already but a few places remain if you’d like to join me. Please click here to see all the information and links to many of my previous trips and client testimonials, many thanks.
