"No one knows how many wild tigers exist today. The commonly cited estimate of 5,000 to 7,000 is a guess, since census methods can be faulty, some governments inflate numbers, and cat experts may understate numbers for fear of losing protected status. What is certain: If tigers are to survive in the wild, they need massive human intervention."
