International Tiger Day is held annualy on July 29 to give worldwide attention to the reservation of tigers.
It is both an awareness day as a celebration.
It was founded at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in 2010.
This was done because at that moment wild tigers were too close to extinction.
Many animal welfare organisations pledged to help these wonderful creatures and are still helping to raise funds to reach this goal.
The goal of Tiger Day is to promote the protection and expansion of the wilde tigers habitats and to gain support through awareness for tiger conservation.
