Tigers Among Us

A report by TRAFFIC-a joint program of WWF and IUCN- on the impact of poorly regulated captive tigers in the United States on tigers in the wild.

With an estimated 5,000 tigers, the U.S. captive tiger population far exceeds the approximately 3,200 individuals believed to exist in the wild today. Around 95 percent of the U.S. captive tiger population is in private hands, with the majority under no regulation at all.
