Today is International Tiger Day!
Did you know Tiger Day is held annually on July 29 to give worldwide attention to the preservation of tigers? It was founded at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in 2010. At that time wild tigers were dangerously close to extinction. In the last 100 years there has been a 97% reduction in their numbers.
Today has been established to raise awareness of their vulnerable position and to celebrate these amazing animals. You can find out more at TigerDay.org
