Though you may not be familiar with the name, you will recognise his beautiful tiger photos.  We’d like to officially thank Michael Vickers, award winning tiger photographer for agreeing to become a patron of 21st Century Tiger.

Michael has been a long time supporter and advocate of our work and over the years has supplied us with iconic images of wild tigers.  We’re so grateful to each of our patrons; Liz Bonnin, Andy Rouse, Gus Christie & Ruth Padel for each helping us reach our mission of giving wild tigers a future.

He comments, ‘My passion for tigers began fourteen years ago when I had the opportunity to visit two of India’s tiger reserves.  I was moved by the sheer power and beauty of this magnificent animal.  I have returned to India every year since to photograph tigers in their natural forest habitat.

I am delighted to support 21st Century Tiger in its quest to help save Asia’s wild tiger population for future generations’.
