Save south china tigers
Hopefully, one day there will be enough to start breeding outside captivity and more in the wild. Since they were hunted down like a command pest a few still in the wild located in remote forest, but it's hard to say because no one has see one in a very long time besides in captivity. Also, to be able for them to be healthy enough to be suitable in the wild. Tigers are a major species that without them their ecosystem will be effected greatly and will also effect humans.
By Sora.Simmons,Emlyn Stults. Hunter.Lynam and Sami Farsoudi

Even thought they are on the verged of extinction they are simple ways that humans can help.
Enforce and make laws to stop pouching and hunting tiger. If people could let them be on thereown in there own envirment theywould organically reproduce on there own.
Read the lable of medication so it doesn't say contain tiger parts.

This article is credible because the author has a PHD in business and owns a business to help save the tigers. this will help us determine why the tigers were hunted and how the zoos saved them.

TheSouth China Tiger is in the provinceof Fujian, Guangdon,Hunan, Jinangxi southern China.
Southeast China-Hainan Moist Forest

The main reason why is because they were concidered as a pest like insects and the goverment encouraged people to be killed. Also, there habitat is getting ruin by deforestation.
In 1950's there are over 4,000 tigers.
There are less than 100 tigers.
30 South China Tigers left in the wild and about 70 in captivities.
By 1956, there were 1,750 raw tiger hides sold.

Their importance to the ecosystem is vital. Without tigers to keep the balance in the jungle, another species could get wiped out and could also affect other resources. They help keep the population of deer, pig, antelope and guar from being over populated, but if they were extinct, there would an excessive population. This would also effect the energy pyramid. If the tiger (tertiary consumer) went extinct their prey (secondary consumer) would take over. If all of the vegetation got eaten then the smaller animals and insects (primary consumers) would not be able to live in that area and would have move somewhere else. Then they would eat all of our food sources. In addition, there would be others consequences like climate change, extinction of other valuable species and loss of potential tourism opportunities.

Saving China Tigers organization

Three possible solutions would be to enforce laws to eliminate poaching,to stop deforestation and create more organizations and awareness.
Poach is one if the main reasons why most land animals go extinct. If poaching keeps on happening they will eliminate one species like the Javan tigers and then go on to the next animal. Another solution is Deforestation will not only affect the South China Tigers, but affect other species habitat and humans.
If there was no tigers to keep the forest safe then the forest is also endangered because people are tearing the forest down to build industries. Then it will cause climate change and carbon emission. It's already the cause of 15% global greenhouse gas emission.
There are organizations like the the Save China's tigers, IUCN and the Chinese government that are trying desperately to bring back the population.

Unlike other tiger subspecies, these are smaller.
The male are usually around 1.8-2 meters.
Female is 1.6 meters.
In comparison to other tigers the males could be 3.3 meters long and the females 2.6 meters long.
The good thing about their size is that they are able to manuver through the jungle easier.
They are also good swimmers and is very fast.
When they mate, they are able to produce 1-5 cubs at a time.
The cubs will stay with their parents for 20 months and then they are on their own.

South China Tiger

Even though they are on the verge of extinction there are simple ways that humans can help.
Enforce and make laws to stop poaching and hunting tigers. If people could let them be on their own in their own environment, they would reproduce on their own.
Donating to organizations that will use that money to protect the tigers.
Read the label on medication so it doesn't say contain tiger parts.
