This is great news for wildlife conservationists who have been working on trying to save Tigers from becoming extinct.
It has been a great two weeks for wild Tigers. The news that Tiger numbers are increasing, have come on top of other positive news for Tigers which was reported two weeks ago.
That news was that found that forests are still big enough to double Tiger numbers. The study was reported in a magazine called Science Advances.
With this great two weeks for Tigers in the wild, but, it also raises questions about other cats in the wild.
Believe it or not, there are cats in the wild which are more endangered than wild Tigers. Let us look at five cats which are more endangered that Tigers. These are five other wild cats that we must save:
1. The Scottish Wildcat
The Scottish Wildcat is a Critically Endangered species. There are less than 100 Scottish Wildcats in the wild. The number is thought to be as little as 45 Scottish Wildcats.
2. The Amor Leopard
3. The Iberian Lynx
Lynxs in general are now more endangered than Tigers. The Iberian Lynx is probably the most endangered Lynx, with only 84 to 143 left in the wild.
4. The Arabian Leopard
The Arabian is another Critically Endangered wild cat. There are thought to be only between 100 and at most 250 Arabian Leopards left in the wild.
5. The Florida Panther
The Florida Panther is an Critically Endangered species of cat in the wild. There is estimated to be between 100 and 180 left in the wild.
