Less than a century ago, more than 100,000 Tigers roamed the jungles and forests of several countries in Asia.
Today, there are only less than 3,200 Tigers remain in the wilderness. Their number has been reduced by 93 percent through habitat loss for farming and human habitation, and several population pockets are teetering on the brink of extinction.
And in Indonesia, there are only around 400 Tigers left, if there no serious efforts to stop poaching and massive deforestation, they will surely extinct in the near future.
In order stop the extinction process, Indonesia and 12 other countries have met recently in Thailand and aimed to double the number of Tigers by 2022.
