How many tigers are in the world?

It is difficult to get complete and accurate numbers, due to many factors. The tiger’s scattered ranges, and the nature of the tiger itself, are just a few. It is estimated, currently the total is between 3000 and 4000, tigers living in the WILD (this estimation does not include tigers in captivity). The subspecies totals are:

  • Bengal Tiger: 1411
  • Indochinese Tiger: 600 – 800 or less
  • South Chinese Tiger: Less than 15
  • Siberian Tiger: Around 400
  • Sumatran Tiger: 300 – 350
  • Malayan Tiger: Less than 400

There are some tiger species that have died out completely due to us humans. A hundred or so years ago there were well over 10,000 tigers. As of March 2010, there are just 3200 tigers left in the world.
