Global Tiger Day, often called International Tiger Day, is an annual celebration to raise awareness for tiger conservation, held annually on 29 July. It was created in 2010 at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit. The goal of the day is to promote a global system for protecting the natural habitats of tigers and to raise public awareness and support for tiger conservation issues.
International Tiger Day has been created so that people around the world can raise awareness for tiger conservation. The aim of the day is to help promote a worldwide system whereby we are dedicated to protecting tigers and their natural habitats. We can also use this day to support tiger conservation issues and to raise awareness. After all, when more people are aware of something, they are going to be more inclined to help, and that is why this day is so important.
There are a number of different issues that tigers all around the world face. There are a number of treats that are driving tigers close to extinction, and we can do our bit to make sure that we do not lose these incredible creatures. Some of the threats that tigers face include poaching, conflict with humans, and habitat loss.
The seventh annual Global Tiger Day was celebrated in various ways around the world. Local events have been organized in Bangladesh, Nepal, and India as well as non-tiger-range countries such as England and the United States. Some celebrities also participated by removing their social media profile photos. WWF continued its promotion of the “Double Tigers” campaign through investing in rangers. Several companies partnered with WWF to help raise awareness.
More awareness in the entire world of tiger populations and the challenges for their conservationists. India counts the number of wild tigers every four years and showed a promising rise from 1411 in 2006 to 2226 in 2014. The trend for rising population of tigers in India is as follows:
In the year 2006 – 1411
In the year 2010 – 1706
In the year 2014 – 2226
In the year 2019 – 2967
India is a habitat of 75% of total tigers on the earth. On this International Tiger Day let us pledge to conserve our forests and natural habitats and save our biodiversity.
Don’t strip the stripes from the Scenery save the Tiger. Happy International Tiger Day!
97% of Tiger numbers have been lost globally. 3 of the 8 subspecies of Tigers are now extinct. 93% of Global Tiger Range has been lost in the last 100 years. Tiger numbers have improved in the last decade bringing them back from the brink of extinction. There are now 3600 Tigers in the wild. 🐯
India is home to 70% of the world’s wild tiger population. 300 rivers in India originate from Tiger Forests. Every Tiger reserve can be linked to a major Indian River as the catchment area. 💧 Tiger forests provide us tangible and intangible social, environmental and economic benefits. 🌳
Tiger Forests regulate Climate, sequester carbon, provide fresh water and air, control soil erosion, contribute to tourism and employment. 🌏 Our lives, well being, peace, prosperity is linked to the Tiger.
As an ‘umbrella species’, the conservation of tigers is integral to their entire ecosystem – one that millions of human lives depend on as well. There would be no conservation without the unsung frontline heroes who risk their lives to protect our forests and its inhabitants. I salute all the forest guards/rangers, our green soldiers, our Van Rakshaks 🐯🙏🏻
Let’s take the time today, on International Tiger Day to understand the world around us a little bit better and do our part to make a difference.🐯
