Posted Sun Nov 21 2010: from BBC:
Only 3,000 tiger left in the wild
Governments of the 13 countries where tigers still live aim to agree moves that could double numbers of the endangered big cats within 12 years. The International Tiger Conservation Forum in St Petersburg will discuss proposals on protecting habitat, tackling poaching, and finance. About 3,000 tigers live in the wild - a 40 percent decline in a decade. There are warnings that without major advances, some populations will disappear within the next 20 years.... A recent report by Traffic, the global wildlife trade monitoring organisation, said that body parts from more than 1,000 tigers had been seized in the last decade.... "Some people are saying 'well, doubling the tiger population is good, but we have no room' - I've heard that said [in preliminary meetings]," he told the BBC. "It needs to be done everywhere - especially we need to see a doubling where you have significant populations. ""If you leave tigers alone and don't kill them and don't poach them, then naturally they will double in 10 years."
