A female tiger occupies between 25 and 1,600 square kilometres [10 and 625 square miles], while males range over even larger areas.There are only 5,000 tigers left in the world. It's not a whole lot. It is also ironical that most of these are to be found in a region experiencing heady growth. How is the balance between economic (and population) expansion and habitat preservation to be achieved?
As forest, grassland and swamp margins disappear, so do tigers.
Is it even possible?
Make room for the tiger. (link to BBC)
(Reading about animals and cramped spaces reminded me of a Bob Hope joke. He said his hotel room was so small the rats were round-shouldered.)
