Sumatran tigers advanced in another way: living on an island, they had to conform to restricted prey and are about half the size of the Bengal tiger. Tigers are an endangered species that need our help in a big way!There may be fewer than 4,000 americans left in the wild. My tiger work for @natgeo journal over the last 20 years has taken me to wild places like India’s tiger reserves, Myanmar, Thailand, and Sumatra. The threats facing this iconic species are poaching, deforestation, and an increasing body parts trade.
When the demand for wild and captive tiger parts stops, so too will the poaching of this desirable cat. When the buying stops, the killing will too.
