  • History:

    Sadly, Bengal tiger numbers have dropped dramatically over the last century. They are currently classified as an endangered species by the IUCN, and suffer dramatically from habitat loss and high levels of illegal poaching. Although there are a multitude of sanctuaries and preserves established around the world, as well as a litany of regulations designed to protect Bengal tigers, their numbers have not yet been able to rebound.

    Present Status Bengal tigers are listed as endangered due to their declining numbers. They’ve mainly suffered from habitat loss, conflict with humans, loss of prey and poaching, although the international ban on tiger trade enacted in 1993 has helped reduce the poaching risk. Conservation efforts to protect Bengal tigers include improved conservation areas, legislation to stop illegal wildlife trade and anti-poaching measures.
