Did you know that there could be less than 4,000 tigers left on earth? A century ago there were 100,000 of them — and the decimation of this species is emblematic of the greater disruption in the globe's ecosystem. Today, on International Tiger Day, Discovery Inc and its brands (like Food Network) shed light on this issue and invite you to learn more about Project C.A.T., our campaign to the reverse the trend.

Project C.A.T (Conserving Acres for Tigers) has a significant goal — to double the number of tigers in the wild by 2022. The core structure of this initiative relies on efforts to conserve land in four countries that tigers call home. This in turn also protects other animals that share those habitats, like elephants, rhinos and leopards.

How can you get involved? Visit the Project C.A.T.'s website to learn how you can donate, adopt a tiger, spread the word and read more about the campaign. Just today, India (home to 70% of the world's tigers) announced that they have accomplished their goal of doubling their tiger population 4 years earlier than anticipated; it is now estimated that India has 3,000 tigers.

As for us at Food Network, we celebrated Tiger Day by doing one of things we do best — baking. 😊 Get the recipe for our Tiger Slice-and-Bake Cookies here and watch this incredibly detailed tiger cake (created for us by Kylie Mangles of Letterpress Bakery) come to life. Both will put a smile on your face.
