Information about the South China Tiger:
The South China Tiger was a species that once was native to the provinces of Fujian, Guangdong, Hunan, Jiangxi in southern China. While the species is not extinct - there are some 30 animals in captivity - it is all but sure that the tiger is extinct in the wild. Of the six subspecies of extant tiger, the South China Tiger is considered a "stem" tiger, meaning that it could be closest to where the tiger originated. While many factors contributed to the decline of the tiger, the exploitation of the species by the fur trade along with the loss of habitat in it's native range likely led to it's extirpation in the wild. While there has been aggressive conservation projects launched by the Chinese, some conservation groups have argued that the money and efforts would be better used to save the Siberian Tiger, which they consider to have a much greater chance of survival than this rare cat.
