Big Cat Figure Gone from 1411 to 1706 in India

As per the latest Census reports released on this Monday after second all-India tiger estimation carried out in the designated 39 reserves in the country, the Tiger population has risen by 295 and now the total tiger registering in India are 1706. According to 2007 Census reports there were only 1, 411 tigers were left at that time. These were released by Union Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh.

With the latest reports out, the tiger count is 70 in the Sundarbans archipelago in the Bay of Bengal which broke the myth that the number is 275 as bandied about by the West Bengal government for long. Speaking on the earlier figures that were made tiger expert Valmik Thapar asked, “Someone from the West Bengal government should answer what they were doing in the past ten years. Will they accept the figure?” The tiger population in Shivalik-Gangetic plains is 353, in the Central and Eastern Ghats 601, in Western Ghats 534 and in the Northeast hills and Brahmaputra flood plains at 148 according to new reports.

Despite the increase the tiger experts from various Wildlife Destinations in India believes and suggests that India should not be carried out by the mere figures and put their money in right place, through right mechanism. The rise in the number of tigers after the earlier setbacks of decrease in tiger population came out to be a boost to wildlife authorities in India. Moreover, it also washed away the Sariska shock of 2004 when it was found that there were no tigers were left in the Sariska Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan.

With release of much awaited estimation results, now the wildlife experts and officials are looking forward to formulate better policies for the conservation of tigers and other species in wildlife Tours of India.
