The tiger’s historical range prior to 1850 included vast ranges of the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, central and eastern China, and into the Far East of Russia. Today, most of the world’s tiger species live in isolated populations within the historic ranges. For example, the Russian Far East in Siberia is home to most of the world’s Siberian tigers, while Indonesia and Sumatra are home to Sumatran tigers.
