In the early 1900’s there were about 100,000 tigers roaming wild. Now there are only about 3,200 left according to the World Wildlife Fund. Unless something is done, they will be extinct within the next 10-20 years.
Endangered wild tigers are now more likelier than ever to become extinct. Everywhere tigers exist, they endure endless pressure from severe habitat loss, illegal poaching for their bones, skin, and meat, and killings from locals in retaliation to a mauling or killing of a person. But, this was bound to happen, as we are pushing our boundaries across their habitat.
They are also losing ground, as humans continue to log forests, pushing the tiger to become even more displaced and stressed. There are eight original subspecies, and three are now extinct, and this happened in a span of half a century. An average of one becoming extinct every 15-20 years.
