Good tiger news from Nepal

This 2017 video is called Land of Tigers – Bardia National Park, Nepal

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Number of wild tigers in Nepal almost doubled

Nepal seems to be the first country where the number of wild tigers has doubled. The countries with wild tigers agreed on this objective in 2010. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has announced that the number of tigers in Nepal has increased from 121 to about 235 since 2009.

In 2010 there were only 3200 wild tigers. In order to prevent the extinction of the animals, the thirteen countries where the tigers still occur then agreed to double the number before 2022, according to the Chinese calendar, the year of the tiger. Nepal now seems to be the first country to achieve the so-called Tx2 target.

“Protecting tigers has the highest priority for the government”, says the Nepalese Ministry of Forests and the Environment. “Our commitment to the global tiger program will only grow as the populations in Nepal grow and our measures work out well.”

Among the other countries that have joined the Tx2 project are Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Russia, Thailand and Vietnam.
