Tiger skin is being sold for up to $10,000 in Tibet mainly to Taiwanese, Chinese and European tourists, said a report by the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) in 2004.

The impact of poaching is bigger than it looks. It is not only a dead specimen but sometimes mothers with brood that still need parental care. A slaughtered mother leaves cubs vulnerable to predators and without food. In India alone, about 50 percent of tigers’ deaths in protected areas are due to illegal poaching.

Gone down by almost 97% in 100 years.

Tigers lost 93% of Habitat

An astonishing amount of forests and other natural habitats have been destroyed to make room. Another threat to the habitat of predators like tigers is the loss of their prey… In addition, the human population frequently hunts the same animals that the tiger feeds on, causing their numbers to dwindle.

Today, four of the remaining subspecies of tigers are considered endangered by the IUCN, while two of the subspecies are considered “critically” endangered.

Why Are They Killed ?

The principal threat to the tigers in the wild is poaching. Various parts of their body (bones, skin and meat) are lust on the market to prepare pretended profitable products in traditional Asian medicine. In any case, they have shown effectiveness.
