Conservationists are warning tigers will become extinct in the wild within the next 20 years unless a major effort is made to protect them.

At the beginning of the last century, there were an estimated 100,000 tigers. Today their population is believed to be around 3,000.

But poachers and illegal traders are better at breaking laws meant to protect the big cats than policy makers and wildlife experts are at upholding them.

Al Jazeera’s Laura Kyle travelled to Malaysia to find out why poaching is rife and why efforts to stop it are failing.
