Tiger Day, 2012



Posted on 25 July 2012  | 
There are just over 3200 tigers left in the wild today. The largest of the Asian big cats may be on top of the food chain but they are also vulnerable to extinction. Tigers are forced to compete for space and food with increasing human population and face unrelenting threat from poaching, retaliatory killings and habitat loss across their range.

This year, WWF joins the Department of Forest and Park Services to travel back in time to breathe life into a world where indigenous communities lived in harmony with nature.

29th July will be marked with a celebration with the Nubi geog community in Trongsa dzongkhag where tigers freely roam outside the protected areas. The program will help create awareness and involve the community in tiger conservation.

Spread the word, “Let the Tiger and Community Coexist in harmony for mutual survival.”
