TIGERS IN CRISIS: THE PROBLEMS
In order to live in the wild, tigers need water to drink, animals to hunt, and vegetation in which to hide. As the mountains, jungles, forests, and long grasses that have long been home to tigers disappear, so, too, do tigers.
These forest fragments are surrounded by rapidly growing and relatively poor human populations, including increasing numbers of illegal hunters.
Without wilderness, the wild tiger will not survive.
