From the point of view of genetics, the small numbers of surviving tigers is a cause of worry since it would cause loss of genetic variability. A disease may wipe out the leftover population if the entire population is susceptible to the disese. It can cause sudden extinction of tigers, adversely affecting the diversity of nature.
