South China Tiger (Panthera tigris amoyensis) – Southern China (critically endangered)

The South China Tiger, scientifically known as Panthera tigris amoyensis, stands as a symbol of China’s rich natural heritage. However, this critically endangered subspecies, once native to southern China, now teeters on the brink of extinction. Characterized by a distinct appearance with a tawny coat adorned by dark vertical stripes, this Tiger embodies the majestic essence of its species. Historically, these magnificent big cats roamed the forests and grasslands of southern China, but habitat loss, poaching, and dwindling prey populations have pushed them to the edge of survival. Today, dedicated conservation efforts aim to reverse their decline, with the hope of one day seeing the South China Tiger once again roam freely in its ancestral homeland.
