The International Tiger Day 2022

July 29 is International Tiger Day, a global awareness event that takes place on this day each year. 

•    International Tiger Day is celebrated to raise awareness of the dwindling populations.

•    It is the focus of negotiations among international leaders to improve the protection of the tiger's native habitat. 

•    A century ago, 100,000 tigers were roaming Asia. Estimates put the number of tigers in the wild at less than 4,000. 

•    It is one of the day's goals to double that amount by the year 2022. Its working title is the Tx2 Initiative. 

•    To promote tiger conservation, the Tx2 Initiative generates around $350 million each year.

•    Rangers and detectives on the lookout for poachers are paid with this cash. 

•    As well as tiger population and movement research, habitat conservation, and even hundreds of wildlife trail cameras, the foundation is supported by the foundation itself.

The tiger has the title of the world's largest land mammal. Their orange and black stripes make tigers simple to identify since they are so distinct. 

•    Indian tigers presently make up 70% of the world's population. A statement from the Minister of the Union for the Environment was the source of this information. 

•    In order to raise public awareness of the importance of tiger conservation, International Tiger Day is observed on a global scale. 

•    On this day, tigers and their natural habitats will be protected across the world. We safeguard other creatures and our forests by ensuring that tigers have a safe and prosperous habitat. 

•    As we commemorate International Tiger Day, we can do our part to ensure that humans and tigers continue to cohabit peacefully.

International Tiger Day History

•    To save the tiger from extinction, India initiated Project Tiger in 1973.

•    Thirteen tiger range nations signed up to TX2 in 2010 to double wild tiger populations by 2022, a goal that has now been met.

•    As of 2017, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has designated the Sunda island tiger and the continental tiger as tiger subspecies.

•    According to the World Wildlife Fund, wild tigers are expected to increase by 50% by 2022.

International Tiger Day Theme

•    In 2022, the International Tiger Day theme is "India initiates Project Tiger to repopulate the tiger population". 

•    There are several benefits to the WWF and its conservation efforts if it adopts a tiger. 

•    They fund projects that work with local communities to protect tigers and also take aggressive action against illicit trade and poaching. 

•    Currently, tigers may be seen wandering freely in 13 nations throughout the world; these countries include Bangladesh, Bhutan; Cambodia; China; India; Indonesia; Laos; Malaysia; Myanmar; Nepal; Russia; Thailand; and Vietnam; The most giant cat in the world, the tiger, is the third-largest land carnivore after the polar bears and brown bears. 

•    The Siberian tiger is the biggest of the tigers, weighing up to 660 pounds.

International Tiger DaySignificance

This holiday's purpose is to increase public awareness of the need to preserve and expand wild tiger habitats. 

•    During the Tiger Conference in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 2010, it was agreed to mark "International Tiger Day" on the 29th of July every year. 

•    Thirteen countries with tiger populations pledged to more than quadruple their tiger numbers by the year 2022 at this meeting. 

•    In fact, the number of tigers has declined significantly in several countries throughout the globe as a consequence of poaching and the destruction of forests. 

•    There are hopes that by 2022, the number of tigers will have doubled in several countries represented at this conference. 

•    The dangers faced by wild tigers are unknown to many people. 

•    To get more people interested in the cause, you may spread awareness by sharing films, infographics, and links to relevant material.
