Why is the world’s Tiger population dwindling?



  1. 0 Votes

    Two main reasons can explain the world’s dwindling tiger population–poaching and loss of habitat. Poachers kill tigers for pelts, organs, and bones which are sold in black markets. Some cultures believe that certain tiger parts have restorative properties or even act as aphrodisiacs. A growing population also means people begin encroaching on their habitats, and as a result the tigers start losing their territory to deforestation. There are only about five or six species of tigers remaining out of the original nine.
