Date When Celebrated : July 29 th

International Tiger Day celebrates tigers, the largest cat on the planet. It is arguably the most beautiful and majestic cat on the planet, too. Love 'em, hate 'em, or just plain scared of them, one must admit that they are indeed a beautiful animal.

At an International Tiger Summit in Saint Petersburg, Russia, the plight of wild tigers came into full focus.  Over the last century, the world-wild tiger population dropped 97% (not including tigers in zoos). With only an estimated 3,000 tigers left in the wild, they are on the brink of extinction. The drastic population loss was due to several factors, among them was hunting, poaching, and loss of habitat.  This international groups sought raise awareness to the plight of the tiger, and to protect and expand their habitat. Their goals and endeavors, are an international effort.

 There are many things you can do to celebrate this special day. Here are a few ideas:

  • Read up about tigers and their loss of population.
  • Show your support of groups working to raise awareness and improve their habitat.
  • Go the the zoo and see these majestic creatures.
  • Make plans to go on a safari, to see tigers in their native habitat.
