The world has already lost over 90 per cent of its tigers.
The tiger is an endangered species. The dramatic decline is a result of a relentless demand for tigers traded for their parts but also to be used commercially. The legal trade with live tigers poses an easy cover for illegal trade, with tiger parts. This causes a real threat to the wild tiger population and encourages poaching.
