Sunderbans tigers in Bangladesh down to 106

Every year, July 29 is celebrated worldwide as Global Tiger Day. In 2010, at the St Petersburg Tiger Summit, Tiger Range Countries declared their aim to double the wild tiger numbers by 2022 and declared July 29 as Global Tiger Day. Bangladesh, being one of the 13 Tiger Range Countries, observed the day on the 29th in Khulna and in all the ranges around the Sundarbans. On this day, we usually raise voices and mobilise resources worldwide for wild tiger conservation and, more importantly, to build awareness on the issues affecting their survival. This year, the nation was shocked to know that the number of tigers has gone down to 106 in the Sundarbans. Please follow the link below to read the report in the Dhaka Tribune.
