In the wild, tigers play the role of apex predator. The biggest of the wild cats can roam almost 300 kilometres to find food and mates, and they very rarely come into contact with other tigers or people.
Unfortunately, the number of wild tigers in Thailand is dwarfed by the numbers that now live in captivity.
There are roughly 200 tigers in the wild and the kingdom is committed to increasing that number to 300 in the coming years.
Sadly, many wild animals face extinction due to a breakdown in the ecosystem of their habitat.
Humans are sharing resources with millions of species. The biodiversity in the forest enriches nature endlessly. However, wild animals are facing the threat of poaching and the constant decline in their population every year has driven some species to extinction or near extinction.
