Scholastic News -- Edition 4;1/7/2008, Vol. 70 Issue 12, p3
The article focuses on a male South China tiger cub that was born December 2007. He is part of a program in South Africa that is working to save the South China tiger. This kind of tiger is in serious risk of dying out. Only 60 to 70 live in captivity, experts say. Fewer than 30 are believed to live in the wild. The cub was the first South China tiger ever born outside of China, the tiger's native habitat. He will eventually be sent there to live.
