Here is a good news for wildlife conservationists and tiger lovers. The population of tigers has increased in India from 1,706 in 2011 to 2,226 in 2014.

"Never before such an exercise has been taken in that massive scale where we have unique photographs of 80% of the India's tiger".

India's tiger population was 1,411 in 2008. Tiger census is carried out after a gap of every three years by the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) in the country.

According to the 2011 tiger census report, the tiger population estimated was 1,706 (i.e. ranging between a minimum of 1,571 to a maximum of 1,875). The results included figures from 17 states having tiger population.

Finally some good news, Tiger population has also been increasing in Nepal as well. Though Numbers seems to be going down in rest of the world.But this is some massive increase in population. I wonder

I guess the positive effects of the above two events are now showing.
