Abstract

Tiger (Panthera tigris) populations are collapsing across their entire range due to the demand for tiger parts for traditional Asian medicines (Nowell, 2000). The global tiger population is now fewer than 3000, inhabiting less than 7 % of their historic habitat (Sanderson et al. 2006; Dinerstein et al. 2007). Recognising tiger poaching as one of the major reasons for the global population decline, several national and international commitments have been made to save the tigers from poachers.
