Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, a biologist who has studied large wild cats for decades, is working with scientists, officials, and conservationists to protect tigers from increased poaching threats. Tiger poaching is currently booming due to demand for skins and other parts in China and Southeast Asia. Rabinowitz’s conservation organization, Panthera, collaborated with the World Wildlife Society in 2006 to create Tigers Forever, a campaign focused on doubling tiger populations by 2016 in critical spots. Watch Dr. Rabinowitz at work tracking tigers in the following video.
