International Tiger Day by Melanie P. Smith

July 29th


Cover design created to honor International Tiger Day International Tiger Day was established to raise awareness for tiger conservation and protection. The goal is to promote a global system that will protect the natural habitats of these ‘big cats’ and raise public awareness and support. One hundred years ago, an estimated 100,000 tigers roamed the earth. Today, experts estimate that fewer than 4,000 exist in the wild. In 2010, a Tiger Summit was held to address the sharp decline in the number of wild tigers. At that time International Tiger Day was also established. Participants recognized that poachers, modernization of wilderness areas, and dwindling habitat left the species on the brink of extinction. Participants left the summit with a goal of doubling the population by 2022. Tigers are considered “umbrella species’, meaning conserving the tiger population also saves many other species as well. As a result of protecting the tigers and establishing sanctuaries across India elephants, rhinoceros and lions have also flourished.

Tigers are the largest cat species in the world. Siberian tigers weigh up to 660 pounds.

At top speed, tigers can run nearly 40 MPH

Tigers are always migrating. Their territory can be as large as 386 square miles.

An adult tiger consumes up to 88 pounds of meat in one meal.

The average lifespan of a tiger is 10-15 years in the wild

Most cats don’t like water but tigers are powerful swimmers. They actually swim great distances to cross rivers. Young tigers often play in the water and adults lounge in streams and lakes to stay cool on hot days.

Tigers are the only cats that are entirely striped. If shaved, their skin has the same identical stripes as their fur.

Tigers do not meow, they growl, hiss and moan.
