Your adoption of Kamrita the tiger will help WWF protect these big cats in the wild. WWF's global tiger initiative aims to double the tiger population by 2022, before it really is too late.
About Kamrita the tiger
The name Kamrita comes from the region of the wildlife reserve where she's most often spotted - the Amrite area in Chitwan National Park, southern central Nepal.
Kamrita is a Bengal tiger, around 7-8 years old and has been photographed on several occasions with two young cubs.
Kamrita represents all the tigers we help.
All our tiger adopters 'adopt' Kamrita so that we can share her ongoing story with you. We hope that by following Kamrita's progress, you can experience the challenges and successes involved in conserving this most charismatic of big cats.
There are five sub-species of tiger that still exist in the wild:
- the Amur (Siberian)
- Bengal (Indian)
- Malayan, and
Entire sub-species such as the Caspian, Javan and Balinese tigers have gone extinct while the south China tiger may have also disappeared from the wild.
