The single most important aspect of tiger conservation in Asia, has largely been the failure to reverse long-term declines. The continuous air of optimism, government plans and resolutions have all had little impact on the ongoing loss of tigers.

The Indo-Chinese subspecies ranges over Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam (a small population likely exists in Yunnan). Ten years ago, the population estimate for Cambodia was 500 to 700 animals.

It’s now been three years since anybody has spotted one in Cambodia. The consensus now is that even if there are some tigers left, there is effectively no breeding population left in Cambodia.
