外文标题：India's tiger population increases by 30% in past three years; country now has 2,226 tigers
NEW DELHI: Here is a good news for wildlife conservationists and tiger lovers. The population of tigers has increased in India from 1,706 in 2011 to 2,226 in 2014.
The new tiger census, released by Union environment minister Prakash Javadekar, shows that India — which has 70% of the world tiger population — has registered an increase of 30 per cent in country's tiger population in the past three years.
"While the tiger population is falling in the world, it is rising in India. It is a great news", said Javadekar.
If one look at the 2008 tiger census figure, the current increase is simply phenomenal. India's tiger population was 1,411 in 2008. Tiger census is carried out after a gap of every three years by the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) in the country.
good indeed. It should catch up with our population.
