Tiger Facts 🐯 :
One of the world’s largest tiger populations is found in the Sundarbans—a large mangrove forest area shared by India and Bangladesh on the northern coast of the Indian Ocean. This area harbors Bengal tigers and protects coastal regions from storm surges and wind damage. However, rising sea levels caused by climate change threaten to wipe out these forests and the last remaining habitat of this tiger population.
Tigers have lost about 95% of their historical range. Their habitat has been destroyed, degraded, and fragmented by human activities.
To save tigers, we need to secure forest habitats across Asia where they live. By protecting large, biologically diverse landscapes, we allow tigers 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.
So let's start today.
