Maintaining tiger connectivity and minimising extinction into the next century

19:00 EST 10 Jan 2018 | AAAS

(National Centre for Biological Sciences) Tigers have lost 95% of their historical range, and what remains is highly fragmented. According to this study, high traffic roads and densely populated urban areas are a severe impediment to tiger movement between fragments. Unplanned development in the future will result in loss of connectivity and an increased possibility of extinction for several tiger populations. To ensure future persistence, tiger populations need to be managed as a network of protected areas connected by corridors.
