Game changers and change makers—Wild tiger cubs

At home

Tigers are some of our most iconic yet now most endangered species. Of the nine subspecies, three are now extinct and all that remain are endangered. Habitat loss, climate change and threat by humans all contribute.

We know that the adult in this scene is a female because they almost always raise their cubs alone.

Discover rare footage of a tiger and her newborn cubs, similar to those depicted in Arthur Loureiro's At Home 1897.

In this astonishing footage shot by the BBC in the Indian jungle, a young tiger cub tumbles from the den, only to be carried back to safety by it's mother.
