Global Tiger Day or International Tiger Day is celebrated today, 29th July, to raise awareness for a global system for protecting natural habitats of the big cats. It was created at Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in 2010.

As a large predator, the tiger plays a key role in maintaining healthy ecosystems. These ecosystems supply both nature and people with fresh water, food, and health—which means that by saving tigers, people will be benefited too.

Wild tigers are declared as an endangered species by World Wildlife Organisation and it estimates that there are just around 3,890 of them left.

To save tigers, there is a need to protect the forest habitats where they live. By saving biologically diverse places, tigers will be able to roam and preserve the many other endangered species that live there. In order to protect just one tiger, we have to conserve around 25,000 acres of forest.
