The tiger population is in steady decline across the world. Today, there are fewer than 4,000 tigers across the planet. Fortunately, many zoos have made â€‹â€‹it their mission to save the species from extinction. Essentially what they do is bring these tigers to the zoo when they are young, so that they can be subsequently released back into the wild once they receive proper training.
Giles Clark has a very special task in this context. He touches the tigers many things, including how to swim. This very important for tigers to learn because no matter how good they are at climbing trees and jumping from rock to rock, water is a completely different element.
