Tigers used to roam abundantly in many Asian countries, including densely forested Singapore. Sadly, when the last wild tiger was shot on 26th October, 1930, in Choa Chu Kang, the iconic feline officially went extinct in our country. Deforestation, urbanization, and rampant hunting and poaching continue to decimate the population of the tiger: In the span of 30 years, the world lost three of the nine tiger subspecies. The current global population of wild tigers is estimated to be about 3,000 and the future of this beautiful animal remains fragile.

It is against this backdrop of urgency that we hope Singapore Tiger Week will bring together wildlife experts from around the world to exchange conservation ideas among each other and to inspire and empower the public of Singapore to lend a hand in preserving the tiger.

Our eminent speakers for this lecture are:*
  • Suzalinur bin Manja Bidin on the Malayan tiger
  • Anak Pattanavibool on the Indo-Chinese tiger
  • Wulan Pusparini on the Sumatran tiger
  • Raghu Chundawat on the Bengal tiger
  • *Due to visa issues, Feng Limin, who is speaking on the Amur tiger, will not be able to make it for the lecture.
Join us for the Tigers of the World Lecture to learn about our five extant tiger subspecies from experts. As a bonus to the lecture, the digitally remastered documentary "Tigers of the Emerald Forest" will be screened and the producer will be in attendance for a post-screening dialogue with the audience.

Through Singapore Tiger Week 2019, we endeavour to bring about positive change among fellow citizens and residents of Singapore. We hope you will join us in taking these small steps together to make incremental impact on restoring the global tiger population and improving tiger welfare around the world.
