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.

problemsAgricultural expansion, timber cutting, new roads, human settlement, industrial expansion and hydroelectric dams push tigers into smaller and smaller areas of land.

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.
