The Siberian tiger is the biggest feline on the face of the Earth at the time, but if things continue to move in the same direction, that will change in the not so far future; and not because other species will grow bigger, but because it will become extinct.


There were around 300 tigers living in Eastern Russia just 4 years ago, but the WCS (World Wildlife Conservation Society) estimates that the population has decreased significantly due to habitat loss (logging) and poaching. WCS say they have done this estimate in order to warn Russian authorities about what has to be done in order to protect this majestic creature.

The main problem is deforestation. The siberian tigers requires vast territories to live, and so does it’s prey and other numerous animals from the ecosystem.
