Superb hard hitting article on tiger conservation in India prior to the third Asia Ministerial conference tomorrow
On April 12, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the third edition of the Asia Ministerial Conference on Tiger Conservation at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi, which will have 13 participating tiger range countries. All these tiger range countries will share their good practices and success stories, thereby contributing towards the cause of conservation. One expects that India will take the lead - not because it is a host country, but because we have the maximum number of wild tigers in the world at 2,226, a jump from 30 per cent since from a shocking 1,411 in 2006 to an encouraging 1,706 (all mean figures from the estimated range) in 2010.
