Tiger Facts

5 Tiger Facts

  1. The tiger is the largest wild cat on the planet and measures up to 3.3 metres and can weigh as much as 360 kilograms.
  2. The tiger is not a social animal and prefers to hunt alone and usually at night.
  3. Unlike the other big cats, tigers enjoy spending time in the water and are actually good swimmers, often cooling off in pools or streams.
  4. At the beginning of the 20th century there were 100,000 wild tigers, now there are less than 3000 tigers left in the wild.
  5. Tigers are incredibly fast and can reach speeds of up to 40 mph

5 Reasons to Protect Tigers

The wild tiger is a precious commodity today this is because their critically low population numbers continue to decline as a result of poaching, habitat loss and other human related issues. Whilst tigers did used to roam throughout Southeast Asia, India has the largest number of wild tigers left on the planet. Here are five reasons why you should adopt a tiger.

1. We Are in Danger of Losing the Wild Tiger Altogether

There used to be as many as 100,000 wild tigers at the beginning of the 20th century. Now the wild tiger population has fallen to as few as 3,200. Your adoption will help WWF raise conservation awareness and protect tigers from coming into conflict with humans which is the main threat to this magnificent species.

2. Help WWF Restore the Tiger’s Natural Habitat

Less than 10 per cent of the tiger’s original habitat remains in a country like India. The figure is less in other countries where the tiger roams. The money raised from your adoption will restore the tiger’s habitat which has become fragmented and in the process that will enable them to move more freely within their protected areas.

3. Help Stop Poaching

By far the most significant threat to the wild tiger comes from illegal poaching. Help WWF in its efforts to increase strengthen anti-poaching patrols and increase the availability of prey in the areas they live in. If we can stop the poaching, then the wild tiger population can be saved from extinction.

4. Help Stop the Trade in Tiger Parts

As we said earlier the biggest threat to the wild tiger population comes from illegal poaching. People hunt tigers for their body parts which are valued in eastern medicine. You can help WWF educate the public by making them aware that there is no medicinal value that comes from a tiger. If we can stop the demand we can stop the supply.

5. Animal Adoption is a Great Gift

Do you know someone that loves animals? If so, adopting a tiger will make a great idea for a Christmas or birthday gift. For just £3 a month you can adopt a tiger and receive a cuddly toy, gift pack and other goodies.

Indian Officials Need To Listen To Tiger Conservationists

Recently Boris Johnson went on safari in Indian’s Ranthanbhore tiger reserve and made the bold proclamation that the goal of 10,000 tigers in the wild by 2050 should be set. That may sound a little radical but if we are to save this magnificent species from extinction in the wild there needs to a major shift in the minds of everyone involved in tiger conservation. This includes politicians, policy makers, scientists and conservationists all of whom have conflicting opinions on how best to save the species in India.

More Tigers Owned As Pets In The United States Than In The Wild

Conservation agency Smithsonian estimates that there may be thousands more captive tigers in the United States alone than anywhere in the wild. Estimates of the US captive tiger population range from between 5,000 to 7,000. In contrast, the population of wild tigers is just 3,900 says WWF. Just how things got so bad is difficult to explain and arriving at an estimate of the pet tiger population in the United States is difficult because so many owners hide them.

Amur Tiger Terrorising Siberian Village

Russian forest officials are searching the frozen countryside in a frantic bid to locate a Siberian tiger that is hunting local dogs in remote Siberian village. The Amur tiger is an endangered species and the tiger that is killing the dogs was actually bred in captivity and then released into the wild as part of a conservation program that has been personally endorsed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

How Wild Dogs Tigers And Leopards Coexist In India’s Jungles

Whilst domesticated cats and dogs may fight tooth and nail, India’s big cats and wild dogs seem to get along with each other just fine. Tigers, leopards, dholes (the Asian wild dog) living in India’s Western Ghat region all compete with each other for exactly the same resources. However, according to a new study which used camera traps to monitor what is happening, all three species seem to coexist with very little conflict between them.
