    1. Bengal Tigers Endangered By Amber Elsner

    2. Problem • Endangered • Habitat loss • Poaching

    3. History • Total 9 subspecies • 3 extinct • 6 survive • Mortality rate in India • 8.19% • Birth rate in India • 4.93%

    4. History • Habitat destruction • Mangrove swamps • Forest coverage • Human settlement

    5. History • Sport for the wealthy • Skins for trophies • Traditional medicines • Prey depletion

    6. Subspecies • Bengal: 3,100-4,700 • Indochinese: 1,200-1,800 • Malayan: 600-800 • Sumatran: 400-500 • Siberian: 350-400 • South China: 20-30 • Balinese: Sept. 27, 1937 • Javan: 1980s • Caspian: late 1950s

    7. Michael Soule • Population biologist • Lose genetic diversity • Stochasticprocess • Genetic drift erases gene forms from population

    8. Michael Soule • Genetic homogeneity • Not for natural reasons • Humans • Habitat destruction • Settlement

    9. Michael Soule • Isolation • Cut off from new genes • Eliminate avoiding inbreeding

    10. Willem Wijnstekers • Secretary-general of the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora(CITES) • Letter addressing concern • Manmohan Singh (Prime Minister of India)

    11. Willem Wijnstekers • Population in India • Estimated approximately 3,600 • Main reason for decrease in population • Poaching • Hunting

    12. Willem Wijnstekers • National park workers • Deny poaching • Prevent poaching and hunting • Population doesn’t reach extinction

    13. Actions • Conservation zone • Preserve habitat corridors • Madhya Pradesh, India • Incentives

    14. Analysis • Prevent • Poaching • Hunting • Conserve habitat locations • Forests • Protect subspecies • With low counts in population • Critically endangered • Endangered
