International Tiger Day
On July 29th, the International Tiger Day raises concerns about the declining numbers of the majority of the big cats' dwindling numbers. During meetings aimed at a mechanism for protecting and improving their natural habitats, global leaders focuses on the tiger.
100,000 tigers roamed Asia 100 years ago. Today, the estimated number brings the tiger population to fewer than 4,000 tigers in the wild. One of the day's goals is to double that number by 2022. It's called the Tx2 Initiative.
Every year, the Tx2 Initiative raises over $350 million to help save tigers. Investigators and rangers who patrol for poachers are paid for the bounty. The fund also pays for the protection of tiger habitat, studies of their populations and movements, and even builds thousands of wildlife trail cameras.

- The Tigers are always on the move. Their turf can be as large as 386 sq miles or 1000 sq km
- tigers are carnivores, and they are essential to keep their range in a healthy ecological balance. tigers are similar to other cats, and they are carnivores, so they are a musty species of wildlife. They prey on smaller animals that are herbivores and thus maintain a balance between the plant-eating animals and the vegetation on which they feed
- In one meal, an adult tiger eats up to 88 pounds of meat
- A wild tiger's life expectancy is about 10-15 years
- Unlike most big cats, tigers are a good swimmer. Not only do they swim, but they can also swim great distances to hunt or cross rivers. To remain cool in the day's heat, young tigers often play in water and adults lounge in lakes or lakes
- Tigers are the only cat species that are completely striped. When shaved, their skin has the same stripe as their fur
- Although other cats meow, tigers do not meow. roaring, growling, hissing, and moaning are all typical of Tiger vocalizations
