July 29 is Global Tiger Day, dedicated to the big cats and awareness of their vulnerability for extinction . At the current rate, with numbers dropping due to poaching and loss of natural habitat, the wild pretty kitties could be extinct in five years. Just being aware of the possibility is one way to help protect tigers — creating hope for their safe future.
And tigers are absolutely adorable, proven completely true by watching this sweet moment between a mama and baby tiger.
