Tiger

Did you know we have lost as many as 95% of our wild tigers in the last century?

Tigers are an umbrella species. This means that by protecting them, we also ensure the survival of other valuable species and preserve their natural habitats. These wild cats naturally regulate the population of the animals they feed on, thus ensuring the maintenance of biodiversity and the sustainability of the environment.
