Wild Tigers Huddle in Six Percent of Available Habitat

Date : 15th September 2010, Source : ENS



NEW YORK, New York, September 15, 2010 (ENS) - Critically endangered in the wild, the world's remaining 3,500 tigers rely for their survival on 42 refuge sites scattered across Asia. These sites encompass just six percent of available tiger habitat, but overhunting, logging, and wildlife trade has forced tigers to cluster there. Once the most fearsome predators on Earth, wild tigers have themselves fallen prey to hunters and the wildlife trade. Loggers have cut down their forest habitat until tigers occupy relatively few reserves.
