Help Turn the Tide for Tigers

Panthera

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.

Press Release: Study Reveals First Ever Camera Trap Photos of a Tiger in Remote Northeast Indian Reserve

Panthera

New York, NY – New data from a camera trap survey have revealed the first ever photos of a tiger (left), and images of more than 30 other mammal species from India’s Namdapha Tiger Reserve. While Namdapha is located on the remote and wild border with Myanmar, it has been impacted over the years by poaching for the illegal wildlife market and has even been declared an ‘empty forest,’ making these recent findings all the more surprising.
