Today, the 29th of July, is International Tiger Day. It was founded in 2010 at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in Russia, to draw worldwide attention to the severely declining native populations of tigers and their ecosystems, as well as the organisations who are working to save them.

To date, just  over 3,000 tigers still survive in the wild, and despite there being a strong international effort to protecting them,  they are still heavily threatened from poaching, habitat destruction, confrontation with humans and being sold on the illegal wildlife trade market. 

For more information on tigers, their current plight or to find out how you can help, please visit these organisations:

Common snapping turtle from our little pond. 

This guy has been hand fed for much of his life and continues to let me feed him. He has no food aggression at all and takes it without getting my fingers <3
