Siberian Tiger - Facts

Average weight of 222.3 kg (490 lb) for males, and 117.9 kg (260 lb) for females

Litter size is normally two or four cubs but there can be as many as six

An adult Siberian tiger will happily gulp down 50 kilograms of meat in a day (9 kg necessary to survive)

Why are they endangered?

The main reason is that humans (over-)hunt them for their valuable furs

Siberian tigers require vast forest landscapes to survive; so logging fragments their habitat and separates the tigers from one another

Conservation EffortsHumans protect the Siberian Tigers by disallowing tiger hunting

Logging can be disallowed for the regions that the tigers occupy

Why should we save them?

We humans caused their endangerment, which deems us responsible to remove them from this status

If the tigers become extinct, the species under them in the food chain will no longer be controlled

In Conclusion...By harming the tigers we harm ourselves, and this applies to all other species

We have to care for the world and environment around us for it to care for us
