International Tiger Day!! 29th July What is International Tiger Day?<br />
International Tiger Day is held annualy on July 29 to give worldwide attention to the reservation of tigers. It is both an awareness day as a celebration. It was founded at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in 2010. This was done because at that moment wild tigers were too close to extinction. Many animal welfare organisations pledged to help these wonderful creatures and are still helping to raise funds to reach this goal. The goal of Tiger Day is to promote the protection and expansion of the wilde tigers habitats and to gain support through awareness for tiger conservation.<br />

  1. I like her name - she's a lovely looking creature. Posted 4 years ago
    1. yes she is... I was very lucky to spot her.. thanks to guides, and especially spotted deers for making alarm calls.. here is lil about the the incidence
      Don't mess with me.. One must see tiger in Wild instead of going to zoos and watching captive ones..<br />
<br />
Its knowing real jungles to sight a Tiger.. <br />
Knowing alarm calls of Deers, Langurs etc animals which will help you spotting tiger..<br />
You have to be there very early like before dawn or around dusk as these are the timing best for tiger sightings because its there time for hunting and to drink water from water bodies nearby.<br />
<br />
This particular Tigress was roaming and the alarm calls of deers made us aware of her presence. We drove towards alarm calls and we saw her coming towards us.. She is young and very Beautiful.. <br />
She came towards our safari gypsy, looked at us, went ahead to cross safari track and while crossing she growled at our safari vehicle, and this was the moment.<br />
She is named 'Dotty Krishna' <br />
Every tiger has different stripe pattern like finger prints and hence their photographic record helps us identify individual tigers from each other.<br />
<br />
All are welcome to India and Indian Jungles.<br />
