Tiger habitat and population numbers have been reduced by 95% since the 1900s. Unless we protect their habitat and continue breeding programs, I believe tigers may go extinct within in the wild within the next few decades and those in captivity will continue to dwindle in numbers as the pool of genetic diversity decreases.
Three out of the eight species of tigers have already gone extinct in the 1900s, including the Balinese Tiger in 1937, the Caspian Tiger in the 1950s, and the Javan Tiger in the 1980s. This has been an average of one species every 20 years. The remaining five species are all critically endangered, and there is only an estimated 4600-7700 tigers left across all five species.
