Description

The world’s most endangered tiger, the South China tiger, has walked our earth for 2 million years and is the root ancestor of all tiger subspecies, yet tragically, it is on the brink of extinction. About 100 remain, mostly in captivity. As an apex species, protection of the tiger means protection of its prey and a complete bio-diverse, balanced and protected ecosystem. In partnership with the State Forestry Administration of China, the Chinese Tiger Project and its team of scientific advisors have developed an innovative big cat rewilding model to re-wild zoo-bred tigers, implemented productive breeding techniques, restored eco-systems on a landscape scale; and laid the foundations for the tigers’ reintroduction into its historic range in China. Save China’s Tigers is a group of charities, working with partners such as the National Wildlife Research and Development Center of the Chinese State Forestry Administration, the Chinese Tiger South African Trust, Laohu Valley Reserve and Conservation Finance International to conserve the South China tiger and its habitat.
