Tiger numbers 'halve in 25 years'
The tigers are at a crossroads in their existence, and their outcome almost completely depends on us.
Now that is a scary thought.
The WWF told a conference in Stockholm there might be only 3,500 tigers left, and that one sub-species, the South China Tiger, could soon be extinct.
Chinese demand for tiger body parts - used in traditional medicine - was described as one of the main threats.
But the WWF said if proper measures were taken, tiger numbers could rise.
Conservationists have recently bought up land concessions from governments in an effort to combat the destruction of forests still inhabited by tigers.
