This Tiger was photographed behind it's glass enclosure. Trying to keep this species from extinction is getting worse. Poaching the biggest threat and logging with losing prey next. We are able to see these magnificent creatures in captivity. Major zoo's and wildlife parks are breeding these creatures for possible re-introduction. A more worrying feature is that there are more Tigers in captivity than in the wild.

There is actually a tiger and lion preservation camp State side. They work off of donations and volunter work. It's all about saving the animals. Anything to save the animals has to be worthwhile.
