The latest report on tiger population shows a staggering increase in the numbers.
The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) and Wildlife Institute of India’s Status of Tigers in India report showed that the adult tiger population in India currently stands at 2,697.
Just late last year, a picture of a tigress walking with her cubs in the Terai region shows a bright symbol for the tiger population in the region.
“This is a magical picture. Count the #cubs with #tigress. I know for a reason how few people will be elated after seeing this. Efforts are helping in making this species bounce back from the verge of extinction,” Indian Forest Service officer Parveen Kaswan shared in his Twitter account.
The tiger population in the vast Terai region went up from 79 in 2014 to at least 119 adults in 2018 alone.
India is known to be one of the biggest and most secure habitats in the world. Ban on hunting, spreading awareness, and strict implementation of wildlife protection law resulted to the continuous rise in the tiger’s population.
