#TigerDay: Adopt a tiger on WWF
July 29 is International Tiger Day, devoted to creating awareness on the conservation of tigers.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) says tigers, the largest of all cats, are one of the most threatened species in the world, with only about 3,890 tigers left in the wild.
"These beautiful cats are threatened by growing human populations, loss of habitat, illegal hunting (of both tigers and their prey species) and expanded trade in tiger parts used as traditional medicines," WWF says.
