Tiger populations in Southeast Asia’s Greater Mekong region have plunged more than 70% in the past 12 years, the WWF said on Tuesday. According to a Channel NewsAsia report citing the conservation group, the wild tiger population across Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam dropped from an estimated 1,200 in 1998, to around 350 today. The report was released ahead of a landmark three-day conference on tiger conservation, which will be held in Hua Hin, Thailand.
