SAVING TIGERS IN CRISIS: THE SOLUTIONS
Most conservationists agree that strong protection of wildlife reserves has been the key to the endangered tiger’s survival so far.
It is vital, however, that wildlife conservation and habitat protection are not isolated solutions, but an important part of a multifaceted tiger survival strategy.
Habitat loss is only one of several significant threats to the endangered tiger’s survival. As long as the demand and market for tiger parts in traditional Chinese medicine thrive, lives of tigers will be threatened.
Economic and political circumstances within many of the tiger countries also require serious attention and international support.
