Tiger population increased in Nepal
KATHMANDU — At a time when the number of tigers in many countries is witnessing a decline, the population of tigers has almost doubled in under a decade in Nepal, according to a recent survey led by the government.
The latest tiger census report — released on Sunday to mark the National Conservation Day — puts the number of big cats at 235, nearly double from the recorded 121 tigers in 2009, making Nepal the first country on track to meet the international goal of doubling the tiger population by 2022.
The success of tiger conservation in Nepal has been largely attributed to the country’s commitment for the adoption of innovative tools and approaches towards conserving these big cats.
Although the number of wild tigers dropped by more than 95 per cent since the 20th century, now, for the first time in conservation history, their numbers are on the increase.
According to World Wildlife Fund (WWF), an organisation dealing with wildlife conservation and endangered species, this news can help Nepal become the first country to double its national tiger population since the ambitious Global Tiger Recovery Plan (TX2), a goal to double tiger numbers in the wild by 2022.Follow @gorkhapost
