Grounded tiger complex problems in the wild

The above graph from the International Union for Conservation of Nature lists tiger habitat fragmentation as one of the major threats to wild tiger populations.

We have already described the tiger population collapse seen by the IUCN (2005). It is no surprise that, since 2006, tigers are now facing extinction in China.

The Tiger Conservation Society is deeply concerned about the effects of tiger overfishing on India’s tigers. The WWF has also documented the dramatic decline of the Indo-Tiger population.

While most of the Indian tiger species (Caretopoda, Puma, Pygmy, and Pekas) have survived, a few have gone extinct. The most severe case of this overfishing is the Achi, a native species (and the only surviving Asian tiger species) of the Pashtu-Chaco desert in North India (see our article Tiger overfishing in the Indo-Tiger belt). The Achi p바카라사이트opulation was decimated by overfishing in the late 1970s.

For example, the most recent estimate for the overall number of Achi in India in 2005 was around 3,000. Since 2000 the Achi population has gone from almost 1,000 individuals to fewer than 300 individuals; the number has also dropped in the last ten years and will soon fall below 400.

Cattle are being killed, illegally, for human con바카라사이트sumption, for food/meat/fuel and to feed the growing domestic livestock industry. Since they are hunted in large numbers for their meat and other products, wild tigers and elephants have begun to fall out of favor in many countries, where they are a source of significant income for the traditional farmer (see our article Wild tigers and elephants).

The tigers have not come out of더킹카지노 this crisis unscathed. The world has learned a great deal from previous human-wildlife wars, and we cannot afford a repeat of the overfishing of tigers and elephants that has plagued the forests of Southeast Asia.

We understand that other tigers will respond with similar aggression in the future, especially when the tigers move into habitats unsuitable for them (focusing on the wild habitat, e.g., the coastal wetlands of India, and the arid southern India). As the tiger population declines in India and elsewhere, we must work together to protect tigers. For a comprehensive list of species at risk, visit “Why is tiger overfishing such a major issue?”
