Wild Tiger population on the increase in Thailand.
The tiger population in Thailand is finally increasing after enhanced protection measures, a study has revealed.
The team of Thai and international scientists said that Thailand was the only place in Southeast Asia where tigers are confirmed to be increasing in population, and believe even better days lay ahead for the beautiful animals. “The protection effort is paying off as the years have progressed, as indicated by the increase in recruitment, and we expect the tiger population to increase even more rapidly in the years to come,” said Somphot Duangchantrasiri, the lead author of the study. The study findings came after the Thai government teamed up with the Wildlife Conservation Society to establish an intensive patrol system in Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary in Uthai Thani to curb poaching of tigers and their prey and to try to boost the wild tiger population.
