In a heartening development, India and Bhutan are celebrating a surge in their wild tiger populations. India boasts a remarkable 3,682 tigers, accounting for 75% of the world’s total, marking a 6% annual increase. Bhutan’s count, a staggering 131 tigers, rose by 27% since 2015.
This conservation success story reflects dedicated efforts to counter rampant poaching and habitat loss. Tigers, vital to ecosystem equilibrium, face challenges like human-tiger conflicts. However, Bhutan’s model of coexistence could inspire global harmony. As we observe International Tiger Day, these strides remind us of the resilient beauty of nature amidst modern challenges.
