Educating Children about Tigers through The Mini Page

With fewer than 3,200 left in the wild, tigers are by far the most endangered of the big cats, and in order to ensure a future for the species, Panthera is working to educate young generations about the threats facing tigers and why it is important to save this enigmatic and declining species. This month, Panthera is featured in a weekly interactive newspaper for children called The Mini Page, which is included in nearly 500 newspapers in the US and abroad and is used to educate children about a variety of topics both in the classroom and at home using stories, pictures, drawings, puzzles, and other games.
