July 29 is International Tiger Day. In the last century, tiger numbers have fallen from 100,000 to 3,890 and they now live in only seven percent of their historical range. If tigers are to survive in the wild they need massive human intervention. (Source: World Wildlife Federation.)

Also referred to as Global Tiger Day, the commemorative day was established in 2010 at the International Tiger Forum in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Tiger conservation is one of the main objectives of international animal conservation organizations. Countries join efforts to protect tigers in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Russia.
