Global Tiger Day, often called International 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 Petersburg Tiger Summit in Russia. Along with the preservation of tigers, the day also aims to protect and expand their habitats. Many international organizations such as the WWF, the International Fund for Animal Welfare and the Smithsonian Institute also observe International Tiger Day. The day aims to build a worldwide system that will be dedicated to protecting tigers and their natural habitats. A safe and thriving habitat for tigers means that we conserve other species and our forests, too. Through International Tiger Day we can work for a future where humans and tigers can cohabit peacefully.
