Tiger Conservation Partnerships
Corporations have an opportunity to be important allies with TigerAid
in virtually all the wilderness areas where we have tiger projects.
TigerAid's Tiger Conservation Partners support our mission
because they know that their customers, shareholders, and employees
share a common concern about protecting endangered tigers and
their natural environment.

Tiger Conservation Alliances
TigerAid's efforts to protect key tiger ranges around the world
cannot be achieved without collaborations and partnerships. Tiger
Conservation Alliances, as we call them, are being built with
conservation groups around the world, multilateral institutions,
governments, and private foundations with the common goal to preserving
the tiger and conserving its natural habitat.
Improving the Global Red List Assessment
of Threatened Species
The World Conservation
Union (IUCN) periodically publishes a comprehensive list and
report, known as the "Red List," which describes the state of
the world's threatened and endangered species. Organizations like
TigerAid use the Red List to design conservation actions and policies
that will curb extinction.
