Tiger Experience: Adopt a tiger


Prefer a one-off payment?

Over the past 100 years, the number of wild tigers plummeted by around 95% – to as few as to 3,200.

In 2016 that figure was revised to 3,890; the first time in tiger conservation history that global numbers have increased.

But we still need your help to achieve our aim of doubling wild tiger numbers.

It isn’t easy or safe to get close to tigers in the wild, so we’re bringing digital Bengal tigers to you with this virtual reality video!

Put yourself in the boots of a ranger tracking a tiger – you can scroll the camera in any direction or use any VR headset for the full experience. Don’t forget to share with friends, and if you want to support our campaign to double wild tiger numbers by helping fund work like the training and equipping of rangers, please adopt a tiger for yourself or as a gift.

This video is best viewed in browsers that support 360 video - please try Firefox, Chrome, or Opera if it isn't working. If you have a VR app installed on your smartphone or VR device, you’ll see a Google Cardboard icon in the bottom right of the video. Click that to put the player into 360 mode.

Bengal tigers can be found in isolated forests and grasslands throughout Asia. Their habitat is wide ranging – from evergreen and monsoon forests, to mixed coniferous-deciduous woodlands, and mangrove swamps.

Our aim

Help us reach our target of doubling wild tiger numbers by 2022

How we can help

We’re determined to double the number of wild tigers to at least 6,000 by 2022 – the next Chinese year of the tiger. To achieve this, we’re focusing on conservation in 12 priority landscapes, including areas in Nepal, India and Russia. At the groundbreaking international Tiger Summit, which we helped to organise in 2010, governments from all 13 tiger range countries committed to this ambitious and visionary species conservation goal and created a global plan for tiger recovery.

Your adoption and support will help us:

  • Train more rangers to protect tigers
  • Equip rangers with essential items like boots and binoculars
  • Set up and maintain camera traps to monitor wild tigers
  • Tackle other threats like loss of prey, habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict
