Protecting Wild Tigers

As the global leader in tiger conservation, the Wildlife Conservation Society has a long history of protecting these big cats through the establishment of protected areas, increasing enforcement against poaching, and public education. WCS researchers continue their work across Asia safeguarding tigers throughout their range.

Tiger Talk?

Our tigers use different ways to communicate. They can rub cheeks and make noises called “chuffles.” They can growl. If the moment calls for it, they can wow us with a roar.

In the Exhibit

Amur Tiger

Amur tigers are also known as Siberian tigers. They are found in the Russian Far East and northeastern China. Male Amur tigers are the world’s largest cat and can grow to weigh 650 pounds.
