The reason of Extinction Some Tigers Species

The main reason for the extinction of these species is the constant hunting and killing of these species either because of their skins that bring high prices on the black market or approaching population areas, and there are three species of the newly extinct tigers, due to the radical change of more than 90 percent of the group of habitats that live Tigers, through logging, agriculture and commercial development, have led to fewer places to live, and unfortunately the remaining six species are threatened with extinction. In this article, we will talk about three extinct tiger species.

1-Bali Tiger

Tiger Bali is a species of extinct tigers, scientific name (Panthera basilica) and the tiger Bali extinct in the early twentieth century, and was inhabited Bali Tiger (Panthera Balica) small island of Bali, Indonesia, was the smallest species of extinct tigers, and weighs from 140 to 220 The pale tiger was a predator.

The Russian government hunted down the Caspian tiger in the early 20th century and instructed military officers to kill all tigers in the Caspian region. This led to an increase in extinct tiger species. Unfortunately, agricultural settlers continued to destroy natural tiger habitats for growing crops. On the remaining tigers in the Caspian Sea in Russia by mid-1950, it is considered the second species of extinct tigers.

A biological survey was conducted in the remote Caspian forests in the 1970s but did not produce any tiger scenes. The final sighting reports differ. The tiger was last seen in the Aral Sea area in the early 1970s, while other reports indicate that the last Caspian tiger He was killed in northeastern Afghanistan in 1997, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature announced in 2003 that the Caspian tigers had become extinct, thus becoming a species of extinct tigers.
