...Reading, It’s International Tiger Day!

Amur tiger for article about International Tiger Day and Russian success in tiger conservation

International Tiger Day - a global event to raise awareness for tiger conservation - is celebrated around the world on the last Sunday in September.

It was in Russia that International Tiger Day was started nine years ago by The Phoenix Fund, a non-governmental organization founded by Russian and U.S. conservationists.

The first International Tiger Day began as a modest parade in Vladivostok, consisting of a few dozen school children and parents with faces painted like tigers.

Since then, the celebration has grown to become an annual city holiday with over 3,000 participants!

Beautiful and beautifully powerful
GRT! to have a whole day for
this creature
...may it bring awareness to its shrinking
population and motivate its
protection and well being.
