The Javan tiger (Panthera tigris sondaica) is a subspecies of tiger that lived uniquely on the island of Java, in Indonesia. At the beginning of the 20th century, as the human population on Java increased, so did related human activity and agricultural land use. Hunted and killed by local populations, the Javan tiger also suffered the destruction of its habitat
- It became extinct at the beginning of the 1980s, mainly due to deforestation, hunting and the loss of its prey.
- Preserving tiger habitats, in all their biodiversity, is an essential part of preventing the extinction of the species.
