This week I am offering a tiger coloring page because July 29 is International Tiger Day. The event is recognized annually by conservation communities around the world. The purpose is to raise awareness for the plight of the tiger. The World Conservation Union estimates that there are less than 3,500 tigers remaining in the wild today. Consequently, the species is listed as endangered on the Red List. I remember doing projects on tigers in high school and college. 20+ years ago, the population estimates ranged from 5,000 – 8,000. It makes me sad to see we have not reversed the tiger’s spiral towards extinction.
Incidentally, tigers are my favorite animal. Therefore, it seems fitting to mark International Tiger Day with some LEGO® inspired art at True North Bricks. Consequently, this week’s free coloring page is based on the LEGO® tiger. This figurine appeared in only one set, the Jungle Air Drop Helicopter (60162). As part of the Jungle City sub-theme, the set was available in Canada from 2017 – 2018. I did not purchase the whole set. However, I did order myself the tiger figurine from Bricklink.

Coloring relaxes the amygdala. That is the part of your brain associated with fear. Consequently, coloring is a great form of stress and anxiety relief. In addition, coloring exercises both hemispheres of your brain. Staying in the lines requires logic (left side of the brain), and picking colors insights creativity (right side of the brain). I combine my enjoyment of drawing and coloring with my love for LEGO® Minifigures and bricks with these coloring pages.
