Global Tiger Day is celebrated every year on July 29th as a way to raise awareness about this magnificent but endangered big cat.
The day was founded in 2010, when the 13 tiger range countries came together to create Tx2 – the global goal to double the number of wild tigers by the year 2022.
Who started international tiger day?
The day was established in 2010 at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit.
On this day, the thirteen tiger range countries – including India, Russia, and China – announced that they would double the number of wild tigers across their range by 2022, which is the Chinese year of the tiger.
Slogan of international tiger day:
This International Day is celebrated annually to remind us that the survival of “Their Survival is in our hands”
The main goal of the tiger conservation project is to raise awareness of the dramatic decline in the tiger population and to work to ensure that tigers are conserved in as many areas as possible.
According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the number of tigers left on Earth is dwindling rapidly.
