Today is Global Tiger Day

This is way off from my usual postings, but I am still working on my YA fiction book about canned hunts and tigers are popular in that category.

I received this stunning photo in my email this morning from WWF (World Wildlife Fund). Bhutan, where the high-resolution camera trap caught this image of a wild tiger, is home to an estimated 103 wild tigers. This tiny country works to ensure tiger safety and natural breeding against a backdrop of poaching and illegal wildlife traders.

Bhutan is probably the smallest country where wild tigers live and is fast becoming one of the biggest conservation champions.

Bhutan is located on the southern slopes of the eastern Himalayas, landlocked between the Tibet Autonomous Region to the north and the Indian states of Sikkim, West Bengal, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh to the west and south (per google.com).
