The student chapter of Mizzou Tigers for Tigers is dedicated to helping the program achieve its goals. We specifically work to educate the campus and local community about tiger conservation and raise money to fund tiger projects, such as research and education programs.
To accomplish our goals, we plan a wide variety of activities. These events include setting up educational booths on campus and at athletic events, presenting tiger information to schools, and inviting numerous knowledgeable speakers. We also fundraise extensively to raise money to donate to tiger organizations. Our fundraisers have included walk-a-thons, bake sales, merchandise sales, and Doggie Play Day.
Mizzou Tigers for Tigers is proud of the university’s partnerships with three zoos in Missouri. Learn more:
