Who will save the tiger.
The enormous destruction of wild places within the past hundred years, has lead to the extinction of three subspecies, and the world's population of wild tigers has declined to only slightly more than five thousand.
Signs of the tiger's threatened existence were known for some time, but ignored. Although a few tiger reserves had been set up in the 1930's, it was not until the 1970's, in response to worldwide alarm over the bleak prospects for the tiger's survival, that drastic action was taken.
Despite all odds, the number of tigers are growing.
The fight for the tiger's survival grows stronger as more people learn the story of it's treatment by humans, as well as the fascinating natural history of the animal itself.
Thank goodness, because a world without tigers would be a poor place indeed.
