India is a habitat of 75% of total tigers on earth. So, it’s our duty to raise our voice against poaching of these majestic creatures!
Putting this idea before the young minds, TOSC celebrated Global Tiger Day, often called International Tiger Day – the annual celebration to raise awareness for tiger conservation – on 29th July. The observance was created in 2010 at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit. The goal of the day is to promote a global system for protecting the natural habitats of tigers and to raise public awareness and support for tiger conservation issues.
