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.
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.
