Imagine walking down a generations-old road. A rustle off to the side makes you snap to attention, and you hold your breath as a tiger crosses your path. Her ancestors have used this same road for as many generations as yours.
In some parts of the world, people share their environment with tigers just as we share ours with coyotes or hawks. In this exhibit, explore the world of the tiger.
Tigers are amazing! Test your knowledge of tigers while learning some interesting facts. Why do they have those stripes? How are house cats similar to the world's largest cats? Learn many "fun facts" about tigers.
Tigers are important! As apex predators, tigers keep their habitats in balance. This means lower levels of the food chain, including plants, depend on tigers. Humans have relied on this balance for thousands of years, tigers are a part of their cultural heritage.
Endangered Species - The chief threats to tigers in the wild are loss of habitat and poaching. Three species of tigers are already extinct. And only about 4,000 tigers are left in the world today.
Hope for tigers - Conservation efforts for saving tigers, in their natural habitats, are underway. Learn about the innovative methods being implemented to make sure tigers continue to have a home in a balanced ecosystem. Every person, regardless of age or location, can help save tigers!
