3,200 tigers remain in the wild

背景: 

As the top predator in forest ecosystems for the past two million years, tigers are an umbrella species, playing a crucial role in ecological processes. Despite conservation efforts, wild tiger populations are on a rapid decline - from 100,000 at the turn of the 20th century - to fewer than 3,200 remaining in the wild today across thirteen countries, representing a 97% decline and the extinction of 3 subspecies. Tigers are poached for traditional medicinal uses and decorations. China is said to be the largest market for tiger products, with demand also coming from Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and the US. 

我們的工作: 

WildAid leads an International Tiger Coalition comprised of 42 environmental, zoological, and animal protection groups, calling for a permanent ban on the trade in tiger parts and products. To reduce demand for tiger products, we use our unique communications model with a primary focus on China. We collaborate across all sectors of Chinese society; working with government, business, media partners, and celebrities to encourage attitudinal and behavioral change to reduce demand for the highly endangered tiger. 

In India, WildAid's field program focuses on Corbett National Park, home to approximately 164 tigers, or 10% of India's tiger population. Our program combines securing migratory corridors for tigers and other species, and working with surrounding communities to reduce human-wildlife conflict, educate and encourage stewardship.
