Habitat threats for Tigers In Southern Asia

This world is contained by its nature and the nature should be a safe place for all, so why not for tigers. The population of wild tigers of tropical Asia has reduced rapidly in the last century. The number will do all the talking, from about 100,000 to mere 3,500 with the Javan, Bali and South China subspecies believed to be extinct in the wild.

In present research’s the numbers of surviving tigers in Bengal are 2,370, along with 510 Malayan, 340 Indochinese and 325 Sumatran tigers. In addition to that their remaining habitat is situated from southwest India to northwest Indonesia. To sustain these creatures and the balance of nature we should protect these habitats.

We should make some adequate habitat conservation plan and long term program designs keeping in mind the economic dynamics of forest clearing in tropical forest countries. Talking about habitat conservations also means giving tiger’s adequate space for breeding.

In different regions there should be different plans because they have different economic structure. Our results indicate that economic variables are affecting the forest clearing in all the tiger habitat countries and creating significant difference in sensitivity to these influences.

In Malaysia and Indonesia, their exists export oriented economies for that the habitat of those countries and the forest clearing is highly sensitive to changes in real interest rates, exchange rates and the prices of forest products. This vulnerability created by the small remaining numbers and limited ranges of Sumatran and Malaysian tigers. But on the other hand in India, Bangladesh and Nepal we face significantly less sensitivity to these variables.

The policymakers, donor institutions and conservation managers should measure these affects; concentrate on pinpointing arrears at high risk, which will provide valuable guidance about the challenges to be overcome in offsetting incentives for forest clearing, and about potential responses tailored to the circumstances of different countries and habitat areas.
