WARNING: CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES] The third episode of WWF's Stop Wildlife Crime series highlights the impact on wild tigers. Populations have declined drastically as high demand for tiger parts and products continues to drive the poaching crisis. Follow our documentary series on World Wildlife Fund's YouTube channel by subscribing now and using the hashtag #StopWildlifeCrime while you watch.

Two of the six remaining subspecies of tigers are Critically Endangered. Every part of the tiger—from whisker to tail—is traded in illegal wildlife markets. Poaching is the most immediate threat to wild tigers. In relentless demand, their parts are used for traditional medicine, folk remedies, and increasingly as a status symbol among wealthy Asians. And in recent years, live tiger cubs are being targeted to meet a rising demand for exotic pets.

Wildlife crime is dead serious. This low-risk, high-profit crime threatens some of the world's best-loved species and the rangers that protect them.

WWF needs your help to make a difference. Please view and share to spread awareness. And, don't miss this five-part series featuring wildlife trade facts and interviews with experts in government, security and conservation every Sunday at 7 pm EDT in September 2013.
