The (Not-So)Thrill of the Fight (Against Extinction)
Known for its stunning stripes, the tiger is a symbol of natural strength, poise, and wonder, but the species is in danger. In fact, over the last 100 years, we’ve lost over 90% of the world’s tiger population, leaving us with less than 4,000 wild tigers around the world today. Some scientists predict that they could all be extinct in the wild within the next decade.
This rapid decline in tiger population is caused by poaching, habitat fragmentation, and habitat loss. Additionally, despite being a master of the wild, this big cat cannot compete with human populations for land and food.
Tigers need our help now. Project Peril is committed to working with the best non-profits to combat poaching and habitat loss. When you give through Project Peril, you can be sure your money is going directly to the best wildlife conservation organizations, such as the Rainforest Trust and the Phoenix Fund in Russia.
