At a Tiger Summit Today in St. Petersburg Russia, global wildlife experts predict that Wild Tigers could become extinct in 12 years if countries where they still roam fail to take quick action to protect their habitats and step up the fight against poaching.
The World Wildlife Fund and other experts say only about 3,200 tigers remain in the wild, a dramatic plunge from an estimated 100,000 a century ago.
Leonardo DiCaprio has been working hard all year to help save the world’s tiger population, which as you may recall are in dire straights. As the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) reported, there may be as few as 3200 tigers left in the wild. And recently it was reported that there are more tigers in (cruel) captivity in the U.S. than roaming wild in Asia. DiCaprio, however, is doing his part. First by donating a cool million dollars to the WWF’s tiger campaign and then by going through extreme travel challenges to meet with Vladimir Putin, the Russian Prime Minister, to discuss the tiger situation.
