WWF Tiger Adoption

In conjunction with the WWF (www.wwf.org), TigerTMS has adopted 43 endangered Tigers in the Khata Corridor in Nepal.

 

Sadly, there are more tigers in captivity in the US than are left in the wild. There’s now estimated to be around 3,900 wild tigers globally. Tigers currently only occupy less than 6% of their global historical range, and populations have declined by around 95% since the beginning of the 20th century. The tiger is officially classed as endangered by the IUCN.

TigerTMS Sponsors WWF

‘Animal adoptions like yours give a huge boost to our work. They not only help fund projects to work with local communities to monitor tiger movements, reduce poaching and help people to realise benefits from living in close proximity to wild tigers – but they also support our other vital work around the world.’

15/03/2022 - An update on our Tiger Adoption

We’re pleased to report Khalika’s two youngsters are thriving, although camera footage shows Kalika has trouble with her front paw and is limping.  It’s likely the injury was sustained defending her cubs. She is otherwise healthy, and has done a fine job teaching her young to hunt.  Kalika’s cubs are around 18 months now, so should have grown their permanent canine teeth and catch their own prey.  At around two years old, they will leave Kalika to establish their own territories, perhaps in the Khata corridor or in the two protected areas it connects – Bardia National Park in Nepal and Katerniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary in India.

 

2022 is the lunar year of the tiger, and marks 12 years since all 13 tiger range countries committed to doubling their wild tiger numbers.  This bold mission is known as TX2 and is one of the most ambitious conservation goals for a single species.  Through the WWF, steady progress is being made; in Nepal a recent tiger survey shows an estimated 235 wild tigers, nearly twice the number estimated in 2009.   Numbers are also increasing in Bhutan, China and India.  The WWF have made great progress, but there is still much to be done.  That is why TigerTMS is offering to adopt a tiger on behalf of every client who takes any of our software solutions between now and Easter.  It’s just one small way to give a little back to the conservation of this great planet of ours.

14/10/2021 - New cubs for Kalika!

That was the great news we received in the latest update from the WWF about the Tigers we’ve adopted in the Khata corridor. Kalika has had two healthy cubs; these are the third set that she’s has produced since 2016. She’s doing a great job increasing the corridor’s tiger population – and it’s encouraging to hear her previous litter are still living in a part of her territory.

 

The cubs are still young and stay close to their mother – at 6 months they still rely on her heavily, they are usually weaned but can’t yet catch their own prey. Mum is doing all the hunting until the cubs get their permanent canine teeth.

 

As they grow and develop, they will watch her every move and learn all their survival skills from her. But their survival is dependent on the Khata corridor staying healthy and wildlife safe.

 

Nepal’s busy Postal Highway passes through a large section of the corridor, separating important wildlife areas. The traffic poses a significant threat to tigers and other animals trying to cross the road, as well as to motorists who could be hurt in a collision.

 

WWF have identified key crossing hotspots where wildlife is most at risk. The Nepalese government’s department of transport has agreed to fund road bridges over these hotspots, enabling animals to cross safely underneath.

 

It’s heartening to learn that conservation efforts are paying off and that the beautiful tigers can use ‘tiger tunnels’ to allow them to move to and fro at their leisure, while the traffic flows freely above them.

 

The WWF aims to help double the number of wild tigers to over 6,000 by 2022 – the next Chinese year of the tiger. For more information or to express interest in adopting your own tiger, visit: wwf.org.uk
