Tigers are in danger of extinction as global populations have plummeted by 96%. Help us protect these species and adopt a tiger from just £3 per month.
Tigers are on the brink of extinction. Global populations have plummeted alarmingly by 96%, for all six-remaining subspecies. Three are now extinct. A combination of poaching, illegal captivity, and habitat destruction have contributed to their dwindling numbers, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation fights for tigers on every battlefield, from the frontline to the world stage. Our commitment to protecting this iconic big cat from the threats driving it towards extinction is absolute. Our mission is to save this adored species – and we can’t do it without you.
Animal adoption is a fun and impactful way you can make a difference. Adopt a tiger for just £3 a month, and you’ll be supporting us as we carry out vital work to save this icon of our wild world.
Just £3 per month (or £36 one-off) could help local community engagement and raise awareness of tigers to achieve effective human wildlife coexistence.
Only £5 per month (or £47 one-off) could empower rangers with the skills they need to track and protect vulnerable tiger populations across India and Thailand.
With £10 per month (or £60 one-off) undercover investigations into the illegal wildlife trade could be funded bringing tiger trafficking syndicates to justice.
You’ll get a personalised certificate, species fact sheet, animal bio sheet, and a photograph. In addition we will send you bi-annual updates on our conservation work with your chosen species.

Adopting a tiger helps fund projects working with local communities to monitor tiger movements, reduce poaching, and raise awareness on the dangers of tiger extinction. In addition, your support can help us:
Ussuri is a female Amur tiger, the heaviest of the six surviving tiger subspecies. Not just the biggest of their kind, the Amur tiger also clocks in as the largest of all the big cats. Like all Amur tigers, she is well adapted to her environment, her thick coat means she is well adapted to life in the snow and can survive in freezing cold temperatures.
Ussuri gets her name from the Ussuri River, which flows along the Sino-Russian border – the last stronghold habitat for Amur tigers. It is estimated there are fewer than 450 Amur tigers alive in the wild today, with 95% of their population persisting in eastern Russia.
Thanks to your generous support, DSWF is working closely with our dedicated frontline conservation partners in Russia to protect the world’s remaining Amur tigers. By taking a tiger adoption with DSWF, you are ensuring rangers receive professional training and essential equipment, vital for successful patrols that will keep Amur tigers, like Ussuri, safe.
