Tiger Recovery

Global Tiger Recovery Program Global Tiger Recovery Program (GTRP) & National Tiger Recovery Priorities (NTRP) Read about the transboundary threats to tigers and the steps that must be taken to reverse the decline in their numbers. At the Tiger Summit in November 2010 the international community made a historic commitment to save tigers. Tiger-range countries and nontiger-range countries agreed to work together to build global support to save the tiger.
Tiger Action Plans Tiger Action Plans (TAPs) Tiger-range countries have the political will to save their tigers that has been lacking in past efforts. Each country has a clearly defined plan that fits into GTI and will increase transnational cooperation. Read about what each country is doing.
