Transcript of Tiger Poaching

Tiger Poaching
Impact
Tigers are poached for their skins, claws, teeth, and bone. Certain parts of the tiger are used as remedies by the Asian culture. Elsewhere, owning tiger parts is a sign of wealth.

Due to poaching tiger populations have dramatically decreased rendering them close to extinction.

According to the WWF a century ago there were 100,000 tigers roaming the Earth, now there are as few as 3,200 left in the wild.
Effects
Tigers are at the top of the food chain in their domain, they keep local prey populations balanced and in turn the entire ecosystem balanced. If a top level predator is removed from an ecosystem the other animals, primarily the herbivores will exhaust the food supply.

Reduced populations of tigers due to poaching reduces the genetic variability, causing inbreeding and a weaker population.
National parks have already been established to prevent poaching but stricter restrictions on parks and more qualified park rangers are needed.

Stricter punishments for the illegal market of tigers.

Improved communications between countries who still have wild tigers.

Ending Poaching
Better and more education on the issue.
