literally meaning "The Garden of Heaven"

The International Tigers Day was celebrated at the Nandankanan Zoological Park on the outskirts of the city. School students take part in a “Save Tiger” campaign at Nandankanan Zoological Park on the occasion of the International Tigers Day.

International Tigers Day is celebrated to raise awareness for tiger conservation.

The goal of Tiger Day is to promote the protection and expansion of the wilde tigers habitats and to gain support through awareness for tiger conservation.

A number of tiger species have already been extinct, proving the fact that the big cats are quite vulnerable to extinction. Climate change, habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict have been attributed to the decline in tiger population.
