International Tiger Day




Thank you for helping us raise awareness.

International tiger Day at ZWF Miami was a great success:

20% of all proceeds were donated to conservation programs that ZWF has identified as making a real difference in species survival.


What is International Tiger Day?

International Tiger Day is held annually 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 organizations 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 wild tigers habitats and to gain support through awareness for tiger conservation.

Dreams Come True At ZWF!

deb and tiger

Dreams do come true at ZWF! Debbie’s dream was to one day hold and cuddle a Tiger Cub in her arms, and her experience at ZWF gave her the opportunity to do that and more! Debbie visited us in early June and was able to meet some of our animal ambassadors, one of them being Himesh, our baby Tiger Cub. In the photo shown above, you can see just how much Debbie truly enjoyed her experience here! Thank you for visiting us and we hope you may keep us in mind for a future visit!
