For nearly 30 years, Siegfried & Roy have been dedicated to
preserving white tigers around the world. Once nearly extinct, white
tigers are relatively plentiful today, with more than 200 in existence
globally. Having embarked on their crusade to save the species in 1983,
S&R authorized the use of one of their big cats, Svengali (actually a
heterozygous golden tiger), to be used as the subject of the stamp.
