WWF-Richmond FC Junior Tiger Protector Competition

Working to double tiger numbers

Richmond Football Club and WWF-Australia have partnered to help double the number of wild tigers and save them from extinction. Since the inception of Richmond Football Club in 1885, the population of wild tigers has plummeted by about 95%. Today, tigers are on the brink of extinction – with as few as 3,890 left in the wild.
Adopt a tiger today & help protect these majestic big cats. By adopting a tiger you will make a real difference to the wild tiger's chance of survival. You will be helping to protect vital habitat and monitor tiger populations.

More about Tigers

In saving tigers, we also save the biologically rich and diverse landscapes in which they still roam – Asia’s last great rainforests, jungles and wild lands. These forests are home to thousands of other species, people and the food, freshwater and flood protection that local communities need to survive. Over the past century, tiger numbers have fallen by around 95% and they now survive in 40% less of the area they occupied just a decade ago. Although mostly solitary, tigers need a large territory, the size of which is determined mostly by the availability of prey.


Tracking tiger populations and understanding the threats they face is absolutely vital to protecting these magnificent big cats. They face daily hazards from the illegal wildlife trade and habitat loss.

What WWF is doing

WWF works to protect and connect fragile tiger habitat, ensuring tigers have the landscapes they need to thrive. We focus our efforts where densities of prey and tigers are at their highest, including the corridors that link tiger habitats within landscapes. Our work includes building local capacity to manage protected areas and collaborating with our partners to manage core tiger corridors.
