Baby tigers in Corbett National Park, India

Did you know the tiger’s mystical golden eyes are a trait that only adults possess?  Babies are born with blue eyes, which open when they are about 10 days old.

Want more tiger trivia?  Check out this list I found with 50 Fun Facts About Tigers.

To learn more about tiger conservation, look at the work that World Wildlife Fund did in 2010, the Chinese Year of the Tiger
Baby TigerWWF rallied efforts to end tiger poaching, curb demand for tiger parts, protect and connect tiger habitat, build political will and marshal support to save critically endangered wild tiger populations.

But much more remains to be done. To lend a hand, take a look at 10 Ways to Save Tigers. The official Year of the Tiger may have passed, but until the tiger’s future is secure, every year should be dedicated to safeguarding their welfare.

Thanks for caring about conservation,


P.S. Interesting in seeing wild tigers in their natural habitat? Consider a trip to Wild India.
