PLEDGE FOR OUR TIGERS
BEYOND THE STRIPES
Tigers are the largest species of cat and one of the most iconic animals on the planet. There may have been over 100,000 tigers roaming the Earth about a century ago—but today they are as few as 3,900 of them left in the wild.
“We lost over 95% of the world’s wild tiger population to rampant poaching and habitat loss!”
At WWF-Singapore, we work closely with communities, governments and businesses to restore tiger populations. By protecting tigers, we are protecting much more than just a species. We are safeguarding the quality of our own lives, and the quality of the lives of our future generations. Sign the pledge now and be a part of a global movement to protect our tigers!
THE ROAR OF THE TIGER IS FADING FROM OUR PLANET
Poaching is the most urgent threat to the tiger’s survival in the wild. Having lost 95% of their global range, tigers are now confined to fragmented populations.
Every time we protect a tiger, we protect an estimated 25,000 acres of forest which we as humans rely on, either directly for their livelihoods or indirectly for food and products. Tigers are an “umbrella species” – meaning their conservation also conserves many other species that share their habitat in some of the most biodiverse areas on earth.
PROTECTING TIGERS = PROTECTING PEOPLE
Saving wild tigers can help to protect thousands of species and create value for millions of people. As an apex predator, tigers keep populations of prey species in check, which in turn maintains the balance in the ecosystem.
Tigers also live in major watersheds, and by protecting those areas we can help secure the freshwater that more than 800 million people rely on in large parts of Asia. Protecting tigers means we are conserving our natural resources—something which ultimately benefits us all.
DOUBLING TIGERS BY 2022
Our vision is to ensure the survival of wild tigers.
WWF is dedicated to achieving the ambitious global goal of 6,000+ wild tigers. To make that a reality, we need to protect, restore, and connect tiger habitat, end the illegal wildlife trade—including improving law enforcement and eliminating tiger farms—reduce demand for tiger products, and help tigers and local communities safely coexist.
