Noted! I would think a very diverse gene pool is needed for every species! Many thanks Cher for another fine news story!! :)

Ted's right...without diversity, many species will weaken and fail because they can't reach one another! Lemus are an excellent are tigers and Sumatran rhinos.

The whole earth is in a slum because humans have been destroying it for a long time!

Tigers are not many recently, how can gene be that 'diverse'? Human did it all.

Translocating tigers from where they were born to a different reserve should help with gene diversity. Tiger corridors are crucial & need to be created asap so tigers can move safely between the reserves
