Tiger Conservation Coalition

Tiger Conservation Coalition:

At the Sustainable Finance for Tiger Landscapes Conference, Bhutan and the Tiger Conservation Coalition Commit to Catalysing US$1 billion for tigers.

  • Tiger Conservation Coalition is a group of NGOs that has worked for many years with partners to conserve tigers.
  • Its vision is for a long-term presence of viable and ecologically functional populations of wild tigers secure in protected habitats, with representation and links across their indigenous range.
  • It brings together leading tiger biologists and experts in wildlife crime, human-wildlife coexistence, policy, finance, development and communications with unprecedented alignment on achieving tiger conservation at scale.
  • The eight non-governmental organisations (NGOs) includes the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), Fauna & Flora, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), Panthera, TRAFFIC, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
  • The members co-developed Tiger Conservation Landscapes 3.0, an integrated habitat modelling system to measure and monitor changes in tiger habitat at range-wide, national, biome and landscape scales in near real-time.
  • This work serves as a model for objective, range-wide, habitat monitoring as countries work to achieve the goals laid out in the 30×30 agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals, and the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework.
