I came to WWF to have some small part in protecting the wild creatures and places I love, and I’m so grateful this issue reports on major progress for one species in particular: tigers! Over the past six years, a global effort called Tx2 has focused on doubling the number of tigers in the wild by 2022. And while the big cats are still perilously endangered, in a few key landscapes things are actually better than they were before. 

So thank you. I’m grateful to all of our tiger advocates—from tireless staff members to the governments, law enforcement officers, and rangers who fight on the front lines against poaching. And I’m grateful to the hundreds of thousands of WWF members, and the millions of passionate people around the world, who have made saving tigers a priority in their lives.

Another round of thanks goes to WWF staffers George Powell and Eric Becker—a scientist and an engineer—who together are forging inexpensive, shareable tech solutions to conservation challenges, and Zambian Brighton Kaoma, who is using every tool at his disposal to spread the conservation word.

Enjoy, and thanks again for helping to make sure WWF continues to thrive.
