Largest of all cats, the tiger is one of the most threatened species on Earth. Across their range, tigers face unrelenting pressures from poaching, retaliatory killings, and habitat loss. They are forced to compete for space with dense and often growing human populations. Securing a future for tigers means more than just saving an iconic species. If tigers are thriving in the wild, it’s an indicator that the ecosystems in which they live are thriving too.
