Tigers

As the top predator in forest ecosystems for the past two million years, tigers are an umbrella species, playing a crucial role in ecological processes. Despite conservation efforts, wild tiger populations are on a rapid decline - from 100,000 at the turn of the 20th century - to fewer than 3,200 remaining in the wild today across thirteen countries, representing a 97% decline and the extinction of 3 subspecies. Tigers are poached for traditional medicinal uses and decorations. China is said to be the largest market for tiger products, with demand also coming from Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and the US.
