Tigers in India - level 2
The world has lost 97 per cent of its tiger population in just over a century. Tigers face dangers of habitat loss and poaching. The trade with tiger body parts grows, especially in China, where they are used as medicine.
India is trying to save its tiger population and says that the situation is getting better. We can thank forest guards and wildlife activists. India has 70 per cent of the world’s tiger population. There are 2,226 tigers in India’s 47 tiger reserves.
Difficult words: habitat (an animal’s natural home), loss (when you lose something), poach (to hunt animals illegally).
