The 29th of July is designated as International Tiger Day. The tiger has the distinction of being the world’s largest big cat.
The distinctive orange and black stripes on a tiger’s face and body make it easy to spot.
International Tiger Day is observed all over the world to raise awareness about tiger conservation.
The goal of the day is to create a global system dedicated to protecting tigers and their natural habitats.
We conserve other species and our forests by providing a safe and thriving habitat for tigers.
We can work toward a future where humans and tigers can coexist peacefully by participating in International Tiger Day.
Inernational Tiger Day History
After it was discovered that 97 percent of all wild tigers had vanished in the last century, only about 3,000 tigers remained in 2010, International Tiger Day was established.
Tigers are on the verge of extinction, and International World Tiger Day aims to prevent the situation from getting worse.
Habitat loss, climate change, hunting, and poaching are just a few of the factors contributing to the tiger population’s decline.
The day also aims to protect and expand the habitats of these species, in addition to their preservation.
International Tiger Day is observed by many international organizations, including the WWF, the IFAW, and the Smithsonian Institute.
Tigers are increasingly coming into conflict with humans due to habitat loss and climate change.
Wild tigers are also under threat from poaching and the illegal trade industry.
The increased demand for tiger bone, skin, and other body parts has resulted in an increase in poaching and trafficking cases.
This has resulted in localized extinctions, making the reintroduction of tigers nearly impossible.
The loss of habitat is another threat that has had a negative impact on the tiger population.
