With only 3,500 tigers hanging on in isolated patches of wilderness scattered across 13 Asian countries, the prospects for the survival of the species outside zoos is grim.

Three is a group of people from several nations who are trying to develop a plan to save them. There are many reserves that they are trying to put aside for them. Hope that they work fast. It it sad to think all this is happening within my lifetime. Never thought I would see so many species threatened.

TEN THOUSAND tigers breeding won't save the species until the problem of human predation is solved. It will only fatten the market.

I hope they survive in the wild. Poaching, hunting and habitat destruction are the big causes of the decline in the tiger population. Anyone involved in those activities is severely prosecuted if the tigers are to be protected.

It would be devastating if the Tiger did not survive. Humanity must not fail them.

Unless the poaching is addressed and, even more importantly, the protection of the reserves, including the prey animals, and moving people away from them to help protect the habitat surrounding it, then the tiger breeding is unlikely to be very successful. What I would like to see, in addition, is the seizure of any privately held tiger who is purle blood, to go into a breeding programme to reintroduce the young into the wild.

all about the poaching and perceived uses for the body parts
Once the poaching ends the tigers will make a strong comeback

There could be hope if we can get all the tigers in captivity released to provide DNA diversity to the breeding pool. I feel such a heavy sadness that so many people world wide have absolutely no concern for the continued existence of magnificent animals such as the tiger. It's very sad that money and possessions is all that matters today. I want no part in it.

Balinese tiger : EXTINCT
Javan Tiger : EXTINCT

Will we be able to save the last ones on earth or will they folow the same way to EXTINCTION ?
