TX2 is a 12 year goal: 2010 – 2022, from the last Year of the Tiger to the next.

In 2010, at the Tiger Summit in St Petersburg, Nepal and the 12 other tiger range countries committed to the most ambitious and visionary species conservation goal ever set: TX2 – to double wild tiger numbers by 2022, the next year of the tiger.

Why double tiger numbers?

The wild tiger population has dropped 97% over the last hundred years. With as few as 3200 tigers remaining in the wild tiger range governments agreed that to ensure a future for tigers drastic conservation action was required, so they committed to the most ambitious and visionary species conservation goal ever set: TX2 – to double wild tigers by 2022.
