Poaching and Habitat loss have extinct two types of tigers, the Balinese and Javan tiger. The Sumatra tiger, their cousin, have recently gone endangered. They had a population of 1,000 but because of poachers and deforestation, their population have droped to 400. According to a wildlife trade monitoring arm, poachers kill atleast 40 of these tigers a year. Also there habitat has shrunk due to the deforstation so the poachers can catch the tigers more easily. This is also effecting the people because the tigers go out into the city looking for shelter. This has really gotten out of hand.
