And dont forget :
A hundred years ago there were 100,000 tigers in the wild. Today there are as few as 3,200.
Why are tigers disappearing?
– Illegal Trade : poaching to feed consumer demand for tiger body parts, mostly for use in traditional Asian medicines and folk remedies.
– Deforestation : as more and more forests are cleared for paper and palm oil, tiger habitat disappears daily.
