How YOU can help endangered big cats

How YOU can help endangered big cats

Did you know? Fewer than 4,000 tigers remain in the wild. Of the nine tiger subspecies, three are now extinct (Javan, Caspian, and Bali) and the South China tiger is considered functionally extinct (not found in the wild) with around 100 individuals living in captivity around the world. On this Endangered Species Day, we challenge you to do what you can to help protect these and other endangered species around the world!
