Must Read

Prime Minister Narendra Modi revealed the results of the fifth cycle of India’s Tiger Census on Sunday, indicating that the country’s tiger population has climbed once again, and currently stands at 3,167 in the wild as of 2022. The 2018 Tiger Census, which was published in July 2019, revealed the presence of 2,967 tigers in India. In the last four years, the country’s animal population has expanded by 200 percent, or 6.7%.

The country’s tiger population climbed from 1,411 in 2006 to 1,706 in 2010 and 2,226 in the 2014 review cycle.

PM Modi announced the Tiger Census while launching the International Big Cat Alliance in Karnataka’s Mysuru, the first of its kind in the country, to commemorate Project Tiger’s 50th anniversary. The three-day conference will centre on the protection and conservation of the world’s seven principal big cats: tigers, lions, leopards, snow leopards, pumas, jaguars, and cheetahs.

Prior to the summit, the Prime Minister visited the Bandipur Tiger Reserve and the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve’s Theppakadu Elephant Camp.

“Project Tiger has been running for 50 years. Project Tiger’s accomplishment has been a triumph not only for India, but for the entire world. India has not only spared the tiger, but also provided it with a fantastic ecosystem in which to thrive. It brings us tremendous joy that approximately 75 years after our independence, we have reached this milestone.

India presently has 75% of the world’s tiger population, and the country’s tiger reserves cover 75,000 square kilometers. This has been made possible by everyone’s efforts,” he stated in his presentation to the world conference.
