Habitat Loss for the Siberian Tiger

  1. 1. Habitat Lose for the Siberian Tiger By: Jennie Clark Bio 101 Prof. Swatski
  2. 2. Factors for Habitat Loss • Forestation • Logging • Agriculture • Fire • Firewood
  3. 3. Other Factors for Population Decline • Loss of prey to hunters due to poor economic conditions • Poaching for Chinese Medicine • War • Mining • Construction
  4. 4. Chinese Medicine • Tiger bones are very valuable for Chinese medicine. These are not the only use for body parts from the tigers. • Other uses include: – tiger wine, made from corpse-soaked liquor – tiger penis soup – pelts are believed to give you strength and power.
  5. 5. Saving Efforts • International software program called SPARKS, which is a stud book. This stud book calculates the degree of inbreeding for each tiger. • Replanting of the forests where the tigers naturally roam. • Vamp up the number of individuals on anti- poaching patrol.
  6. 6. Other Efforts • There are a couple of tiger-breeding facilities in China to help bring the population back up. – The down side to these facilities is that some of the facilities supervisors do not watch which tiger is breeding with another, which leads to major inbreeding and major biological issues. – Also, these facilities are more tourist traps and tiger farming than true research centers.
  7. 7. If Efforts Fail… • If scientists cannot find a way to save the Siberian Tiger, experts say there will be no more wild Tigers come 2022. • There is a 12 year plan in place. However, there is a hefty cost associated with saving the wild tigers, $350 million for just the first five years of the 12 year plan.
  8. 8. Big Kitty • In the US, there are 7,000-15,000 tigers living in zoos, circuses, farms and backyards. Some states have banned private ownership of such large, wild cats, while other states do not. • People think that they can train these large cats, but they forget that they are wild. • There are over 100 people hurt or killed each year from interacting with wild cats.
