For years scientists from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute have been sounding the international alarm for tigers and coming to their aid. It will take more than one organization to save tigers. That is why the Tiger Conservation Partnership (TCP) works with the Global Tiger Initiative (GTI), a cooperative network of governments, NGOs and international organizations dedicated to saving tigers and doubling their populations by 2022, in addition to conducts its own conservation research. TCP is trying to empower tiger-range countries to effectively protect their tigers. TCP trains conservationists, wildlife officers, field managers, and researchers for the 13 tiger-range countries.
