White Tiger


White tigers only exist in captivity, they are a color morph of the wild tiger. This white coloration is caused by a recessive gene.


White tigers only exist in zoos and animal collections.

Conservation Action:

While white tigers are increasingly common in captivity, the wild tiger is threatened with extinction. The future of the wild tiger depends on controlling the illegal hunting of tigers and conserving ecosystems in their range countries that can support large tiger populations for generations to come.
