International Tiger Day is celebrated – 29 July

International Tiger Day – 29 July

Every year on July 29, Global Tiger Day, also known as International Tiger Day, is a festival dedicated to bringing attention to the issue of tiger conservation. The purpose of the day is to raise public awareness of the magnificent tiger and the value of conservation efforts to preserve this amazing animal. It was developed in 2010 during the Russian Tiger meeting in Saint Petersburg. Today’s goal is to support a global system that protects tigers’ natural habitats and to increase public understanding and support for tiger conservation concerns. International Tiger Day has been shown to work well in raising the profile of tigers online through information searches.

BHUTAN

On Global Tiger Day 2015, Bhutan revealed the results of its first national tiger survey, which counted 103 wild tigers. More exciting news from the Himalayan nation for this Global Tiger Day: a wild tiger has been spotted in Bumdeling Wildlife Sanctuary (BWS), a place where they haven’t been seen in almost 20 years! The Bhutanese supported the #ThumbsUpForTigers campaign and the Tx2 goal of doubling the number of wild tigers in the country.

Malaysia

As few as 250 Malaysian tigers are believed to survive, making them highly endangered. To raise public awareness about the state of Malaysia’s national animal and the measures being taken to improve the conservation of wild tiger populations in the Belum-Temengor Forest Complex, WWF-Malaysia and Maybank organized an exhibition on this Global Tiger Day. At Maybank’s headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, the finished artwork was unveiled on Global Tiger Day after the public was asked to show their support with their fingerprints.

The largest cat species, tigers, are characterized by their muscular build and eye-catching stripes. But there are many threats that these amazing animals have to deal with, such as:

– Poaching and illegal trade

– Loss and fragmentation of habitats

– Conflict between humans and tigers

Because of this, there are currently only about 3,900 tigers living in the wild, and their numbers are steadily declining.

To promote conservation efforts and raise awareness of the plight of tigers, International Tiger Day was created in 2010. The day’s global celebration includes activities and campaigns aimed at increasing public awareness and financial support for tiger conservation. You can affect change by:

– Support organizations for the conservation of the tiger. – Raise awareness of the importance of conserving tigers and their habitats

– To make environmentally beneficial decisions to reduce your influence on the ecosystem.

Together, let’s protect these magnificent animals and their environments. Let’s scream for the protection of the tigers!
