Tigers are threatened by illegal trade of their skins, bones and other body parts for use in Chinese traditional medicines. The destruction of the forests that tigers depend upon is also a major threat.

For years, people have said there are about 500 wild tigers in Thailand. And in the park called "KHAO YAI" (in "ISAN" area, northeast of Thailand), there is maybe 10 of the majestic animals. The main predator is the human.
