Tigers at risk over vast roadwork planned across Asia

Tiger habitats are under threat from nearly 24,000 kilometers (15,000 miles) of new roads to be built by 2050.  The explosion of new roads is driven in part by global development strategies such as China’s Belt and Road Initiative.  Road construction contributes to three major threats to tigers: degradation of habitat, prey depletion, and poaching.  More on this worrying trend on destroying tiger habitat by following the link below.
