Thailand will organise the International Tiger Day 2020 from July 25 to August 2 at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre in Pathumwan district to celebrate International Tiger Day on July 29, the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation announced on its Facebook page.

 

The exhibition, which is open to the public free of charge, will feature photos of tigers that have been found in the wild as well as illustrate tiger conservation efforts in Thailand and the situation of tiger population in Southeast Asian countries.

 

“Currently Thailand has around 130-160 tigers, whereas most tigers in natural habitats are found in the western region forest and Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary,” said the department. “In the past 10 years, the number of tigers found in the wild have increased from 41 to 79, and we estimated that the number could double by 2023 due to the rehabilitation of natural resources.”

 

The World Tiger Summit at St Petersburg, Russia in 2010 had agreed to name July 29 as International Tiger Day to boost awareness of tiger conservation in their natural habitats. Currently wild tigers are found in only 13 countries: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Russia, Vietnam and Thailand.

Quite magnificent creatures that have been driven to the edge of extinction in some regions .. it will be to our collective eternal shame if these and other endangered species are allowed to become extinct when we have the means to ensure their survival ..
