Both cats are extremely rare, and no exact number is known for either population. National Geographic estimates approximately 30 ligers are in existence; because they are the product of human intervention, they are all in captivity and are unable to breed in a natural environment. There are thought to be approximately 200 white tigers left in the world, only twelve of which have been sighted in India in the last 100 years.
Ligers are rarer than white tigers. There are about 200 white tigers left in the world, whereas there are under 100 ligers (the information here varies, but every source claims under 100 total). White tigers come from a genetic condition, and ligers are the result of crossbreeding a male lion and a female tigress; thus, it makes sense that there would be fewer ligers since it takes some exceptional conditions to produce one.
