Is the end of the wild tiger in sight due new Asian infrastructure


Wildlife advocates are on a mission — to double the number of tigers in the wild by 2022. Though progress is being made, there are concerns that the scale and pace of infrastructure development plans in Asia could destroy all recent gains.  “It’s not hopeless,” said Jon Miceler, senior director of Asia Programs for the World Wildlife Fund. “There are so many bright spots. Saving tigers is something we can do.”  But, he warned, “if we fail to do that, somehow or another our human family [would have] failed to protect something great that we share the Earth with.”  See link below to read the report in the Los Angeles Times.
