With only around 3000-3200 left - and a mere 400 to 500 of them Siberian - tigers are on the fast track to extinction thanks highly in part to poachers. About 1,800 of the remaining tigers live in India and are distributed throughout 13 tiger reserves collectively known as the "Central Indian Tiger Landscape" while the rest are spread out in places like Siberia. Authorities routinely come across traps for the tigers along with poisonous weapons used to kill them.
A single tiger can bring in nearly $50,000 on the black market. Across Asia, nearly every part of their bodies is sold, but mostly for a traditional Chinese medicine known as tiger bone wine and for their skins, which are used for décor. Due to the poaching of tigers, overall populations have dropped from 100,000 a hundred years ago.
