Tiger Facts

There may have been 100,000 tigers at the beginning of the 20th century.
By 2010 there were as few as 3,200.

Tigers once lived across Asia, from eastern Turkey and the Caspian Sea south of the Tibetan plateau eastward to Manchuria and the Sea of Okhotsk. Tigers were also found in northern Iran, Afghanistan, the Indus valley of Pakistan, and the islands of Java and Bali.

Today, as a result of rampant poaching and unchecked habitat destruction, the tiger's range has shrunk by over 95%.

Incredibly adaptable, tigers can survive in vastly diverse habitats of extreme temperatures.
