Save Tigers Now is a global campaign by WWF to build support to double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger. Across Asia, tiger numbers have dropped from 100,000 at the beginning of the last century to as few as 3,200 today. Illegal poaching and massive habitat loss are driving tigers to extinction. If we don’t take action now, one of the most iconic species on our planet could be gone in just a few short decades. By saving tigers, we can also protect some of our last remaining ancient forests and improve the lives of indigenous communities.

“Leonardo DiCaprio committed $1 million to World Wildlife Fund for tiger conservation efforts. The donation will support antipoaching efforts and protect critical tiger forests where the needs are most urgent.” – WWF US Nov. 23rd, 2010

Any donation made through this Causes page and Save Tigers Now will fund antipoaching efforts and habitat protection in the 12 priority landscapes across Asia that WWF believes represent the best locations to maintain viable, thriving populations of tigers. It will also fund advocacy and outreach activities to build support for tiger conservation.
