The International Fund for Animal Welfare is one of GreaterGood’s charitable partners involved in all aspects of animal rescue. They are leading the fight to protect the wild tigers of the world…and helping when these amazing animals are found in private zoos.
In 2006, IFAW established two national parks in Russia’s Primorye district –a protected habitat for tigers. They’ve also done similar work in India, home to the largest remaining wild tiger population in the world. With their help, tigers have returned the Sariska Tiger Reserve, a place where all the wild tigers had been killed by poachers.
Today, IFAW is working with the Indian government to establish habitat corridors connecting fragmented tiger populations, thereby reducing conflict between humans and tigers.
In India and Russia, they rescue wild tiger cubs found injured or orphaned by poachers and rehabilitate them with the goal of returning them to life in the wild.
In the United States, they’ve worked to rescue tigers kept captive in unsafe conditions by private owners. Although these animals cannot be safely released into the wild, IFAW makes sure that they are taken to proper sanctuaries where they will live out their days with room to roam and proper diets.
They also continue to work with federal and state authorities as well as lovers of big cats to educate the public on the need for stricter regulations governing the ownership and breeding of tigers:
