Can we Save this beautiful Bengal Royal
Estimations in 2005 indicate an approximate worldwide population of 3,000 Bengal tigers. The bulk of the population is found in Bangladesh and India. There are about 200 tigers in Nepal and a small, unknown number in northwest Myanmar. In the early years there were probably 20,000,000 Bengal tigers living in the wild. But much later, due to poaching, there were only 1,835 Bengal tigers left in the wild, however, a good conservation program increased it to 6,000; but then it dropped to 4,000.
The Bengal tiger is now strictly protected and is the national animal of Bangladesh. Following the introduction of a tiger conservation program in India, known as Project Tiger, the population of wild tigers has increased significantly. The tiger population of Bangladesh is officially estimated to have reached about 500 (unverified), up from 200 in the 1970s. In the Sunderbans, a 2004 survey found the presence of about 280 tigers on India’s side & 500 tigers in Bangladesh side.
Today i had a conversation with Rohit abt the fact that the population of the Bengal Royals is increasing day by day. Even though there are programs to save the Bengal Royal, the poaching is going on and on..This beautiful animal needs to be saved. So the government in India and Banlgadesh need to take action.
Not only in theory but in practice.
