International Tiger Day

Good news on the 3rd annual International Tiger Day, July 29, 2013.
The Sumatran tiger population is on the rise according to the Tambling Wildlife Nature Conservancy. Around 350 wild Sumatran tigers exist in Indonesia, and that represents about 10% of the world's wild tiger population.
I was lucky enough to photograph this Sumatran tiger at the Taman Safari in Bogor, Indonesia earlier this year.
