Today is Global Tiger Day, a day to raise awareness about the dwindling number of tigers in the wild.
About 100 years ago, 100,000 tigers lived in the wild. Today, that number is about 3,200.
There are more tigers in captivity in the United States than in the wild. About 5,000 tigers live in captivity here in the States.
Habitat loss and poaching are two of the biggest contributors to the declining population of wild tigers.
