Protecting Wild Tigers

  • Date: 11 October 2022

This year marks the Year of the Tiger in the Chinese Lunar calendar. To mark this occasion, Ginette Hemley, WWF’s senior vice president for wildlife conservation, joins the show to talk about the global effort to protect wild tigers. 



Ginette touches on the current state of wild tiger populations (1:55), why protecting tigers matters to nature writ-large (4:52), what we’ve learned from a 12-year global initiative to double tiger numbers (9:38), and how people in the US can help make a difference (16:30).
