Tigers Species

In the wild, tigers face a grim future.

Tigers are one of the most endangered species on the planet according to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora (CITES).

There are approximately 3,000 tigers remaining in the wild and their survival is constantly threatened.

With three subspecies already extinct, the plight of the tiger is a serious problem largely caused by humans in three major ways: hunting, poaching and destruction of the habitat.

At the current rate of poaching and habitat loss, it is estimated that tigers in the wild could completely disappear within the next ten years.


Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation (DWF) working together, DWF, 21st Century Tiger and ALTA make a significant contribution to conservation initiatives throughout the tiger range states to help save tigers in the wild.
