Panthera Tigris Corbetti
Good one Nyack!!
Cher - 615 days ago - ens-newswire.com
The Indochinese tiger (Panthera tigris corbetti) is a tiger subspecies found in Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and southwestern China that has been classified as endangered by IUCN. Its status is poorly known but the extent of its recent decline is serious, approaching the threshold for critically endangered.
Panthera tigris corbetti, also called Corbett's tiger, was named in honour of Jim Corbett.
Tigers in peninsular Malaysia, formerly classified as Indochinese, have recently been reclassified as a separate subspecies, Malayan tiger Panthera tigris jacksoni. No Indochinese tigers have been seen in China since 2007, and it is believed that the last specimen there was killed and eaten by a man now sentenced to 12 years' imprisonment for the crime.
According to government estimates of national tiger populations, the subspecies population numbers around a total of 350 individuals. All existing populations are at extreme risk from poaching, prey depletion due to poaching of deer and wild pigs, habitat fragmentation and inbreeding. In 2009 the last known wild Indochinese tiger in China was killed and eaten by nearby villagers from the village of Mengla.
In Vietnam, almost three-quarters of the tigers killed provide stock for Chinese pharmacies. Tigers are seen by poor natives as a resource through which they can ease poverty.
The tiger's numbers will be difficult to increase unless residents can view a live tiger as more valuable than a dead one. Some are starting to realize this and are hoping to use the tiger as a draw for ecotourism.
THE INDOCHINESE TIGER
It is estimated fewer than 1,500 Indochinese tigers are left in the wild. However since the tiger has a very wide range, it makes it difficult for researchers to determine the exact numbers. Therefore some scientists believe the numbers may be a few as 1,200.
Indochinese tigers are located across southern China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia Laos, Thailand and eastern Burma. Their habitat is mostly made up of remote forests and hilly or mountainous terrain. Their diets mainly consist of wild pig, wild deer and wild cattle.
The adult Indochinese tiger males are somewhere between 8-9.5 feet long and females, 7-8.5 feet long. Males weigh 330 to 430 pounds and females, 221 to 287 pounds.
Hunting for trophies, poaching by farmers, and the growing demand for tiger bones in Oriental medicine are key factors for the Indochinese tigers decline. Habitat loss due to population growth is also a major concern.
According to some reports, almost three-quarters of the Indochinese tigers killed end up in Chinese pharmacies for Chinese Traditional Medicines.
It is thought the Indochinese tiger is disappearing faster than any other tiger sub-species with one tiger being killed each week by poachers.
Beautiful animals!! Thank you Nyack.
List Indochinese Tiger as Critically Endangered
International Union for Conservation of Nature Headquarters, Asian Regional Office
The Indochinese tiger is a tiger subspecies found in Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and southwestern China. This tiger is disappearing faster than any other tiger sub-species with one tiger being killed each week by poachers.
All existing populations are at extreme risk from habitat loss, prey depletion, inbreeding, hunting for trophies, poaching by farmers, and the growing demand for tiger bones in Asian medicine. According to some reports, almost three-quarters of the Indochinese tigers killed end up in Chinese pharmacies for Chinese Traditional Medicines.
In Myanmar, a designated Protected Tiger Area was clear-cut for sugar and tapioka plantations. Cambodia continues illegal logging in tiger habitat. Fewer than 30 are believed to be left in Vietnam,- and one has not been seen in China since 2007 when the last one was eaten.
We ask to you move the status of the Indonesia tiger to Critically Endangered and make more efforts to stop poaching and habitat loss.
