The tiger is one of the most iconic of wild animals. Sleek, magnificent and instantly recognisable, the tiger has become immortalised in the legends, values and lore of many human cultures.

Until you eliminate the poverty which drives poaching and the greed/ignorance which thrive on it...we will lose tigers in the wild!

Agree with Pam W. Educating the poachers is key, and creating sustainable jobs for them to thrive on is what they and every human being deserves. Jobs can be created all over this Planet saving everything we've still got! Tiger farm owners can invest their $$ in other projects, once they are educated about the difference between a magnificent wild tiger, and a caged specimen that is being bred and destroyed for folklore medicine that can be replaced with herbs, etc.

Noted, Thank you Cher

Noted - greed will override education I'm afraid. Well to do, educated people in South Africa (vets, game ranch owners etc) have been caught in Rhino poaching stings. They should have task teams hunting these poachers and shoot them on site. Show them absolutely no mercy.

horrible all round. As long as the market exists and the buyers don't care then change will be slow. Tigers don't have that long. That's really once again all this mess comes down to - the greed of those who feel their money makes them entitled to be responsible for atrocity
