Every year on July 29, the globe celebrates International Tiger Day.

The purpose of the day is to increase public awareness of the significance of tiger conservation among people, organisations, and governments.

The tiger population has decreased by around 95 percent in the previous 150 years, with only about 3,000 remaining, according to the World Wildlife Fund.

The decision to recognise this day was made in Russia in 2010 during the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit

Representatives from around 13 nations declared that the tiger-populated countries will take initiatives to more than double the tiger population by 2022

The theme of the day last year was "Their Survival is in Our Hands." However, the theme for this year's International Tiger Day has yet to be revealed.

Nearly 70% of the world's tiger population is found in India. Project Tiger was started in India in 1973 with the novel aim of conserving the world's tigers.

Since the Tiger Project's inception, there have been nine tiger reserves; however, coverage has risen substantially over time.

People celebrate this day by holding seminars and hold the more conversations in order to get more people engaged in the cause of protecting tigers. .  They also donate directly to organisations that aim to safeguard tigers.
