Tiger Party

By Patrick Kowalczyk

January 28, 2021

While Times Square may have been nearly empty on New Year’s Eve for the first time since 1907, an estimated one billion people worldwide watched the 2021 ball drop and countdown.

For the 11th year in a row, The Tiger Party was in charge of supervising the famed countdown clock, which was synchronized live on three of Times Square’s most iconic billboards and then transmitted worldwide. One of the highlights: The Tiger Party supported the first-ever Livestream interview via a billboard when President-elect Joe Biden and Jill Biden were interviewed live by Ryan Secrest on the Times Square American Eagle sign.

While wolves have previously been shown to affect pumas’ prey selection and habitat use.
