Tigers are in trouble, and National Geographic photographer Steve Winter is on a one-man mission to address the plight of this magnificent cat - while there's still time. Together with Panthera, the world's largest nonprofit organization dedicated to saving big cats, and its Tigers Initiative, Winter reveals a decade worth of stunning images and stories of tigers in their world. In Tigers Forever, readers follow Winter through Myanmar's jungles in search of tigers; into the forbidden realm of poachers in Sumatra; and witness the breathtaking intimacy between a tiger mother and her cub. Winter's gripping images, along with co-author Sharon Guynup's eloquent prose, tell the dramatic story of the tiger's fight for survival, and the lengths to which one man would go to bring that story to the world. Above all else, Tigers Forever reveals the tiger itself: elusive, majestic, ferocious, powerful, mysterious-and in desperate need of our help to survive.

Just as tiny kittens and puppies grow into bigger cats and dogs, wild animal babies grow into adults too. What happens to these exotic pets when owners realize they can no longer care for them, but they can't return to the wild? And what about big predators that get hurt or sick? This photographic journal takes readers behind the scenes of six organizations that have opened their doors and hearts to desperate animals in need.
Featured is Carolina Tiger Rescue and some of our amazing animals, including Nitro Tiger, Emerson Tiger, and Chewie Binturong.

Big cats are fierce predators that roam the world from the mountains to the deserts. How are these wild cats that hunt for their food the same as pet cats that might chase a mouse or ball of yarn? How are they different? Children learn the days of the week as they travel to seven different world habitats to meet the big cats, and then back home to compare and contrast the domestic cat’s behavior to that of its relative.
