Global Tiger Day was established in 2010 at the St Petersburg Tiger Summit when tiger range countries declared their aim to double wild tiger numbers by 2022.

This ambitious plan has galvanised actions across Asia, where the Global Tiger Recovery Programme is being put into force. The threats to wild tigers are enormous. Human population pressure, habitat destruction, illegal demand for tiger parts, poaching and disease.  Positive actions from all sides; conservation organisations, governments, zoos and members of the public are working together to safeguard wild tigers for the future.  Reports this year suggest that wild tiger populations are increasing in both Russia and India thanks to collaborative efforts from these groups.

Tiger Day 16 is an opportunity to donate to wild tiger conservation and to build awareness of the issues effecting their survival. Please help! The more we raise the bigger the changes that can be made.

This year a great number of zoo’s will be holding fundraising events for Tiger Day 16.  We’ve developed loads of special resources and posters specifically for this purpose, please get in touch if you would like to hold your own fundraising event at work! Where possible please use the hashtag #TigerDay16 so we can keep track of the celebrations on the day!
