Global Tiger Day or International Tiger Day is an annual event that takes place on July 29. This day was created in the year 2010 at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit. This day has been recognised to increase awareness for tiger conservation and protection of their natural habitats.

India counts the number of tigers every four years and it has increased from 2226 in 2014 to 2967 in 2018, according to BBC.

Spread the word

Raise your voice

If you see anything harmful, then write to the authorities who are in charge of the tiger reserves.

Prevent illegal trades

Don’t buy tiger items made from them to prevent illegal trades of tigers. If you get to know anything about poaching, then contact your local law enforcement agencies. They will take a step against it.

Reduce usage of natural resources

Try to reduce the usage of products which are derived from forests like paper.

Conduct meetings

You can conduct meetings to have discussions on tiger conservation with others.
