Tigers are our planet’s iconic big cat.

The beautiful, awe-inspiring tiger is one of our planet’s most iconic animals. But here’s the shocking truth; wild tiger numbers dropped by more than 95% since the beginning of the 20th century. In recent years, conservation work and the commitment of various governments has halted the decline in global tiger numbers. To coincide with International Tiger Day, we’d like to invite you to get to know more about this amazing species. We’ve got some fantastic free resources for you to enjoy along the way; including fact sheets, craft activities and a free downloadable Tiger poster!
