Hope For Tiger Population

New reports released by India and Bhutan on International Tiger Day show that tiger populations have increased in both countries over the past year. India is now home to 3,682 tigers, which is 75% of the world’s wild tiger population. Bhutan reported a 27% increase in tiger population, bringing their country’s tiger total to 131. Both countries have taken tiger conservation efforts seriously in recent years by preventing poaching, limiting habitat loss, and encouraging breeding programs. The global tiger population has dropped by 95% in the past century and they are still considered an endangered species, but these successes in India and Bhutan give environmentalists hope that the tiger population will continue to grow and thrive despite climate change related challenges.
