WWF Christmas Advert 2016 - Help protect tigers

 

Here's the Christmas Advert from the WWF, which focuses this year on tiger conseration and protecting tigers.   The ad is urging us all to become Tiger Protectors.  By 2022 (the next Chinese Year of the Tiger), it's aiming to double the current number of tigers to over 6,000 in the wild.  

 


Charities involved in tiger conservation include the following - they all have information on how you can help on their websites:
