CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson University students are bringing together Tigers from a dozen other schools to try and save tigers in the wild.

The organization called Tigers for Tigers will hold a three-day summit in Clemson starting Friday.

Clemson students invited people from 57 other colleges that use Tigers as mascots to the summit. Twelve other schools joined the effort, including Louisiana State, Princeton, Auburn, Missouri and the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Tigers for Tigers President Sean Carnell says he hopes students can come up with solutions and help spread the word that tigers are endangered in the wild.

The summit continues through Sunday.
