Every year, we host a national annual summit to bring students together. This year, University of Missouri Tigers for Tigers will host our 2nd Annual National T4T Summit on April 4-6th in Columbia, MO.

We will bring students together from all over the country to learn about tiger conservation efforts and mobilize students to take action. The students will hear presentations from some of the world's leading experts in tiger conservation and will participate in breakout sessions to discuss local Tigers for Tigers efforts, educational initiatives, mass awareness campaigns and policy reform.
