This video from the World Wildlife Fund tells us that there are currently less than 4,000 tigers left in the wild. But they don’t need to be doomed for extinction.
We need to stop the sale of tiger parts in Asia, thus cutting down on poaching. And we need to find ways to connect small tiger reserves, so they have a larger area in which to roam and thrive.
If we can do these things, natural breeding can double the tiger population in just over a decade.
