There are thought to be a mere 3,200 tigers left in the wild compared with 100,000 a century ago. Habitat destruction throughout the last 100 years has destroyed nearly 93% of the tigers territory which once stretched from eastern Turkey to the far east of Russia. Due to a loss of habitat and poaching threats, three subspecies of tiger: The Bali tiger, the Caspian tiger and the Javan tiger have become extinct. Most of the remaining tigers now live in India, Nepal, Tibet, Siberia, Southern China, Indonesia and parts of Southeast Asia. Those that remain, face threats from poachers who kill tigers for their bones, whiskers and teeth because they are considered to have medicinal properties.
