Transcript of Tigers
The whole species is endangered throughout its range. Tigers have been overhunted for their fur as well as for other body parts that many people use in traditional medicines. Tigers' habitat has also dwindled seriously as humans have developed land for uses such as farming and logging.
Tigers are one of the Earth's fastest disappearing species Endangered: at risk of becoming extinct or having no more of its kind on the planet. Since 1900, the endangered tiger's habitat and numbers have gone down by up to 95 per cent. Poachers, people who hunt animals illegally, poison waterholes or set steel wire traps to kill tigers and their prey so they can sell their skins and body parts for use in traditional Chinese medicine.
