Tigers will become extinct

The 20th century saw tiger numbers plunge by over 95% worldwide. By the 1970s, they had disappeared from Central Asia, by the 1980s from Java and by the 1990s from South China. Three of the nine subspecies – Bali, Javan and Caspian tigers – were extinct by the 1980s.

According to the WWF, Tigers are at risk of going extinct by 2015 if conservation efforts are not improved.
