Wild Tiger: Losing Our Stripes – Decline in Every Aspect of Tiger Life

With wild tiger numbers as low as 3,200, direct, targeted poaching of tigers is the most immediate danger for the species today. However, a serious contributing factor to the plight of the tiger is the widespread decline of its forest larder – the deer, wild pigs and wild cattle such as the Gaur.

One tiger needs to eat the equivalent of a medium-sized deer every week to survive. Without adequate food, the tiger population declines very fast. Too many forests of Asia are classed as ‘empty forests”. The trees are there but the animals are gone. Anti-poaching efforts, therefore, must be targeted at protecting both the tiger and its prey.

  1. I think this is sad, but unfortunately with population increases this is going to continue to happen- forest get sawn down and people move in :/ Soon there will be more tigers in zoos than in the wild- and with the decline in the wild they have fewer choices for mates unless tigers are reintroduced.
