Tigers are one of the most popular animals in the world. And also, one of the most threatened with extinction. One sub-species is extinct in the wild (South China tiger) and three other sub-species are already completely extinct (the Balinese, Javan and Caspian tiger).
Saving tigers needs a deep understanding of the causes. Next to this, you need people that are willing to step up as tiger advocates, publicly support or recommend a particular cause or policy, and willing to go the extra mile.
“I Am A Tiger Advocate” (IATA) was founded to save tigers and is focusing on changing the culture with regard to tigers. It is an initiative that accelerates other tiger-saving activities, like anti-poaching, conservation, animal welfare activism, closing down tiger farming, stopping the tiger-selfie trend, and sustainable tiger tourism.
This manifest explains how we see an ideal world with tigers, a world we believe is feasible and realistic. Not in one or two years, but in 15 to 20 years.
