Dedicated to the Great – Big Cats of the World
The world is losing its Great Cats at a vicious speed. If we lose our apex predators, then we lose a vital part of this Earth. This page was created to help bring awareness and to be a voice for our Great-Big Cat Species. We must come together to help put a stop to this “Out of Control War” to kill our great cats, before it is too late. Once they are gone – there is no coming back.

Poaching, habitat loss and fragmentation have reduced the global population of the tiger to less than 3,500 and the pressures continue to mount. Under the current scenario, it is predicted that the tiger may well be extinct within the coming decade.
Celebrating this day is a way to help raise awareness about the many threats tigers face:
