Each year on an average three tigers die inside the Sundarbans. Also tigers are losing their habitat on an alarming rate. According to specialists, officers of the Forest department & local people, tigers are becoming extinct due to some eight factors as tiger’s liver malfunction caused by too high salt level, cyclones, tidal surge, flood, lack of food, lack of protection, lack of proper care for older & ailing tigers, killing of infant tigers by bigger male ones, entrapment or poisoning by unscrupulous people & also beating by nearby locale when tigers trespass into the villages due to deteriorating habitat.
