Very encouraging news on the increase in tiger numbers in Nepal
Good news from Nepal as its tiger numbers are set to double by 2022 which was the target set for all 'Tiger States' at the St. Petersburg International Tiger summit in 2010. During the last census in Nepal in 2013 tiger numbers recorded were 198. Much credit is due to the pro-active stance of the Nepalese government who have enlisted the help of its army and citizens plus WWF who have been encouraging local people to conserve its wildlife in their own interests.
