Many things are impacting Tiger population. They are:

  1. Human activity like logging and deforestation - which is reducing tiger habitats
  2. Human hunting & poaching which is killing dozens of animals ever year.

Hunting is the bigger problem. Ancient Chinese Medicine believes that Tigers body parts have medicinal properties. Because of this Tigers were killed extensively and indiscriminately. Because of this, they were pushed to near extinction. India, China and all neighboring countries where the Bengal Tiger lives have banned hunting and so, the tiger population is slowly recovering
