The Big Wild Cats!

          Saving the tigers is no easy job; three subspecies of tigers are already extinct all over the world – the Bali, Javan, and Caspian – and the World Wildlife Foundation is trying to prevent the remaining 6, of which all have been given IUCN statuses of ‘endangered’ or ‘critically endangered’, from disappearing as well. WWF has set the goal of ‘Tx2’, aiming to double the number of wild tigers by the year 2022, which happens to be the Chinese Year of the Tiger. According to the WWF, the tiger numbers are as low as 3,200 around the world, due to a number of reasons. The big cats are forced to compete for their habitat, a result of deforestation leading to habitat loss. Poaching and killing the big cats are serious issues, especially near rural communities.
