Tigers are some of the biggest predators on the planet, and they are critically endangered! Destruction of their habitat, human activity in the forests where they live, and the illegal animal trade is a serious threat to these beautiful cats. Researchers are hard at work studying wild tigers and helping make decisions about how to protect them. In this book, you can learn how scientists use technology to capture photos of these shy animals, and other methods they use to understand where tigers live and what they need to survive. You'll also learn how choices you make a home can help protect tigers on the other side of the world!
