Introducing the Tigers...

Last but most definitely not least, the tigers. Residing in the iconic Queens building, our flagship naturally lit and ventilated building, it is now home to the tigers, which according to the WWF, top the list of most endangered species with numbers as low as 3,200. A recent article stated: 'Tigers occupy less than seven per cent of their original range, which has decreased by 40 per cent over the past 10 years. Continuing deforestation and rampant poaching could push some tiger populations to the same fate as its now-extinct Javan and Balinese relatives in other parts of Asia.Tigers are poached for their body parts, which are used in traditional Asian medicine, while skins are also highly prized. Additionally, sea level rise, because of climate change, threatens the mangrove habitat of a key tiger population in Bangladesh's and India's Sunderbans.
