About this book

Detailed study of the issues surrounding the continuing survival of the tiger in the wild. Meacham uses data from all over Asia, and also uses the latest census and survey results which is emerging from the Russian Far East and Nepal, where previous data has been scarce and somewhat unreliable. A valuable book which sorts fact from fiction and shows that there is a glimmer of hope for at least some sub-species and populations. `To save wild tigers, do we raise captive tigers that can satisfy Asia's insatiable demand for tiger parts? A demonic question, surely, but one we cannot avoid. Like most of us, I have kept my head in the sand on this one. When I read Meacham's book, my heart froze.', Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Tribe of the Tiger.
