Siberian tiger in severe decline
The last remaining population of Siberian tigers has declined significantly, according to research.
...
Its report says that tiger numbers have shown a "declining trend" over the last four years, and the latest assessment counted just 56 of the animals.

The researchers attribute the decline to poaching and habitat loss.

The organisation carries out annual tiger surveys at 16 monitoring sites scattered across the tigers' range. The monitored area represents about 15% of the animals' habitat in Russia.

I cannot imagine the world after the tigers.

2. Sad
In the end, the planet will be a burnt-out cinder.

Karma is likely to be harsh.
