Tigers falling prey to humans

Khao Nangrum within the grounds of Kaeng Krachan National Park in Petchaburi province was once endowed with a much more diverse array of flora and fauna than is found today. In particular there are rare species that are gradually becoming extinct. Accordingly, after two months of observation using remote cameras to monitor the movement and numbers of big cats in the area, it was found that very few exist today.

Spanning over 2 million rai (about 800,000 acres) of land between Thailand and Myanmar, Kaeng Krachan National Park was only seven years ago inhabited by four of the Panthera tigris (as tigers are known scientifically), but in April this year, only one tiger was found in the survey zone.
