International Tiger Day, also known as Global Tiger Day, is an annual celebration to raise awareness for Tiger conservation, held annually on 29 July. It was created in 2010 at the Saint Petersberg Tiger Summit. The goal of the day is to promote a global system for protecting the natural habitats of tigers and to raise public awareness and support for tiger conservation issues.
Global Tiger Day is July 29, and is celebrated around the world with special ceremonies, youth rallies, and educational activities to help bring the message of tiger conservation to remote villages in the Hukaung Valley in Myanmar all the way to Dhaka, Bangladesh, and even in Washington, DC., Thailand embarks on smarter patrols to better protect the tiger
Four years after the launch of the Global Tiger Initiative, the partnership has taken firm root in the thirteen tiger range country governments and begun to attract interest from outside the traditional conservation community. The World Bank signed two new agreements at GTI’s 4th Anniversary event, Global Tiger Initiative – Outcomes and Challenges.
Several champions of the Global Tiger Initiative, ministers from tiger range countries, and international partners spoke on Tuesday, June 26 at the World Bank and assessed progress on implementing the Global Tiger Recovery Program. The Recovery Program was endorsed 18 months ago in St. Petersburg, and the Global Tiger Initiative will release the first Implementation Report at this meeting: Global Tiger Initiative – Outcomes and Challenges.
