Ways to help on International Tiger Day
Today, July 29th, is International #TigerDay. The tiger, one of the world’s most iconic species, hovers closer to extinction than any of the big cats. There are just 3,200 tigers left in the wild, scattered in small pockets across Asia. A century ago, more than 100,000 of these majestic cats roamed across 30 nations. Today, they hang on in just 12 countries. They’ve disappeared from 93 percent of their former range.
UPDATE: National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative current campaign, HighFive Give $5 is creating a worldwide vitual high five chain in support of big cats. And considering today is International Tiger Day why not participate?
- Snap a photo of yourself giving a high five to a friend, a pet—get creative!
2.Share your photo on social media using #5forBigCats and #BigCatsForever. Tag five friends to send them a virtual high five!
3.Give $5 (or more) to the Big Cats Initiative at donate.ngs.org/5forbigcats. Then watch the high-five chain grow across social media here:
