Dear Friend of Panthera,
I have just returned from Bangkok, Thailand where I joined many of the world's leading tiger experts for our 6th annual Tigers Forever meeting to assess our progress in stemming the decline of one of the most enigmatic creatures on the planet - the wild tiger.
Today, fewer than 3,200 individuals remain in the wild. Along with habitat loss and overhunting of wild prey by humans, rampant poaching for tiger skins and other body parts sold through illegal wildlife markets across Asia, is driving the species towards extinction.
