Latest census reveals only 182 tigers remain in the Sunderbans
Wildlife experts in Bangladesh’s Sundarbans forest say a new census of the region’s tigers has revealed that there are only about 100 left. The figure indicates that the highly endangered animal roams in far fewer numbers in one of its last remaining natural habitats in the world than previously believed. The Sundarbans, spread across a 10,000 square kilometer delta, crisscrossed by scores of rivers, straddle the eastern part of India and the southern tip of Bangladesh. About 60% of the mangrove forest, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, is in Bangladesh, while the remaining part lies in India. Please follow link below to read the report on the Voice of America.
