International Tiger Day 

Since the beginning of the 20th century, the world’s tiger population has declined over 95%, leaving roughly only 3,900 wild tigers left in the world. 

As the world’s largest living cats, tigers instill an appreciation and a deep sense of respect and awe – to witness a tiger appear from the brush is an incredible experience! They are threatened throughout most of their range due to overpopulation, illegal poaching and disappearing habitat.

Since its inception in 2010, International Tiger Day is celebrated each July 29th in an attempt to raise awareness, and support, for tiger conservation. The idea for this recognition was first introduced nearly 10 years ago at the Saint Petersburg Tiger summit with a goal of promoting a global system for protecting the natural habitats of tigers and to make the public aware of the crisis at hand. 

This topic is important to Backcountry Journeys. As lovers of the natural world in general, it is important to see and take part in efforts at helping it not only survive but also flourish. In 2020, we will begin a brand new photo tour to India, where, due in large part to conservation efforts such as these, tiger populations have actually grown in the National Parks of Kanha and Bandhavgarh. India is home to 70% of the world’s tiger population. 

On this International Tiger Day, you, too, can do something to help. Click here to see all of the things WWF is doing to promote this cause, as well as to donate if you’d like. You can also assist in moving the conversation along on social media by using the hashtag #WorldTigerDay or #InternationalTigerDay on Twitter and/or Instagram.

Kenton Krueger grew up and spent the first 33 years of his life in the corn country of Omaha, Nebraska. After studying aviation at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Aviation Institute, he “conned” his way into the newsroom at the award-winning Omaha World-Herald where for 3+ years he wrote and photographed news articles on a variety of topics such as community events, travel and even mixed martial arts for the sports department. Yet something was missing. While on backpacking trips to Grand Teton and Grand Canyon National Parks in the mid-2000’s he was quick to realize that the wild lands of the western United States stoked a fire in his heart as nothing else could. This realization led to a relocation to Flagstaff, Arizona, and he hasn’t looked back. He has spent the past several years guiding backpackers, hikers and photographers into the wild places of the American West such as Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone National Parks as well as in the Grand Staircase Escalante in southern Utah. In addition to backpacking and camping, his adventures include rock climbing, exploring the slot canyons of southern Utah, mountain biking, and bagging 14ers in Colorado’s San Juan Mountain Mountain Range. Kenton is a trail runner, a former pilot, newspaper photographer, and writer. Kenton looks forward to utilizing his years of guiding experience, combined with his passion and experience behind the lens to provide memorable and unforgettable experiences at the wild places we will visit together.
