*** 21st Century Tiger and the Amur Leopard & Tiger Alliance (ALTA) have joined forces as WildCats Conservation Alliance.  This website is no longer being updated, please visit our new website conservewildcats.org for the latest wild tiger and Amur leopard information. ***

 In the last 100 years Asia’s wild tiger range has shrunk by 93%
and 40% of that happened in the past ten years.

Now there could be as few as 3,200.

The time to act is now!

21st Century Tiger channels money raised by the public, international zoo community and corporate supporters, to carefully chosen wild tiger conservation projects which provide the best conservation value and make the most difference.

Wild tigers are under threat of extinction across their whole range from habitat degradation and fragmentation, depletion of prey animals and poaching to supply a large illegal global trade in their body parts.
The projects we support focus on these major threats.


100% of all donations received are given to these wild tiger conservation projects as our administration is funded separately.
