About 21st Century Tiger

21st Century Tiger was established in 1997 as a unique fundraising initiative for wild tiger conservation. The current members are of the initiative are the Zoological Society of London and Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation. Since its inception, 21st Century Tiger has become one of the ten most significant non-government organisations funding tiger conservation worldwide.

A panel of international tiger experts rigorously examines all projects submitted to 21st Century Tiger for funding. The projects must have sound practical scientific and/or conservation value and use local staff wherever possible. Reports from these projects are reviewed every six months to ensure that the funds are being used to the best possible advantage. 21st Century Tiger is proud of its record of funding new projects which keep up with ever-changing environmental situations.
