Leo DiCaprio: Save Tigers Now!
With as few as 3,200 tigers left in the wild, WWF and Leo today kicked off the Save Tigers Now campaign.
In honor of the Chinese Year of the Tiger, an ambitious goal of $20 million has been set with the vision of doubling the tiger population by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger.
“Tigers are endangered and critical to some of the world’s most important ecosystems,” said Leo. “Key conservation efforts can save the tiger species from extinction, protect some of the planet’s last wild habitats and help sustain the local communities surrounding them. By protecting this iconic species, we can save so much more.”
Leo is currently in Asia right now with WWF experts to see the threats tigers face first-hand. Visit SaveTigersNow.org to follow Leo’s journey and participate in the effort to save tigers!
