Tiger Population increases in India by more than 20 percent since the past census reveals the latest report.
Seeking help from the Armed forces of India, the Environment Ministry asked the Indo Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP) to help protect the Snow Leopard – a rare and scarce species of the high altitudes and an endangered animal.
The tiger count in India was last recorded as approximately 1400. But this census was done in 2008 and in all likelihood the population of the national animal is far less than projected. This has become apparent after Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said on Tuesday that the new year has already seen 14 tiger deaths in the nation.
