IFAW "Boots for Bhutan" - Help save the wild tiger video

In this short video, produced by the International Fund for Animal Welfare, we make the case for funding the rangers of Bhutan in an effort to save the last of the world's remaining wild tigers.

Advocacy and education

Despite the grave threats facing the world's last surviving wild tigers, there is hope. But the global community needs the political will to find new ways of working together and turning talk into action.

"We don't want a world without tigers!" echoed the youth voices around the world in 2010, the Year of the Tiger.  The next generation is the hope for wild tigers.

IFAW is already leading the way in important global initiatives to ensure tigers are protected.

Ending the tiger trade and the sale of tiger parts

Tigers are in danger of being traded to extinction.

International trade of tigers and their parts is banned under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) and all tiger range countries have national legislation protecting tigers from poaching and trade.

Securing habitats for tigers - and people

Wild tigers, the biggest of all the cats, once roamed vast stretches of Asia, from the Caucasus to South and East Asia. But the tiger population has plummeted by 97 percent over the last 100 years.

Today, only 3,700 to 4,200 wild tigers survive in small pockets of scattered habitat.
