John SeidenstickerThe tiger (Panthera tigris Linnaeus, 1758) is a member of that small group of animals that have nearly universal instant recognition and enormous public appeal and empathy, the charismatic megafauna. The tiger was declared endangered in 1969, yet in this “Year of the Tiger: 2010–2011,” it is distressing to witness that wild tigers are still being annihilated.
