Rising Number of Rare Tigers in Five Countries
Nepal: If you are worried about the conservation of rare animals, this is the news for you as there have been encouraging increases in the population of rare tigers from five countries.
Wildlife experts have announced that the number of wild tigers in Bhutan, China, India, Russia and Nepal is declining rapidly. However, tiger populations have grown significantly in all these countries since an organized project was launched ten years ago.
In 2010, a campaign called TX2 was launched. The aim was to find out the total number of tigers in the natural environment of 13 countries around the world, and to double their population by 2022. But two years before the end of the program, there is good news.
The best news came from Nepal, where only 121 tigers were spotted in 2009 and 235 in 2018. The number of tigers in India is currently between 2,600 and 3,350, more than double the number in 2006.
The WWF says the number of tigers in Bardia National Park, Nepal’s only habitat, rose from 18 in 2007 to 87 now.
The number of tigers in Russia has increased by 15% in the last ten years, after which 540 animals have been noted. The number of tigers in Bhutan’s Royal Manas Park has risen from 10 to 22.
In 2010, the number of tigers in China did not exceed 20 and now their breeding is on the rise. In this way we can say that the number of this rarest animal has increased significantly. However, their survival is still threatened by poaching and the destruction of natural habitats. It should be noted that the TX2 project focuses on protecting the tiger’s natural habitat and habitat and preventing its hunting and trafficking in the second phase. Both of these measures have helped to protect the endangered tiger.
