NEW DELHI: The world has more tigers in captivity than in wild and this unique situation is mainly due to tiger breeding for commercial purposes. The scenario was highlighted jointly by 45 NGOs from across the globe on the occasion of International Tiger Day here on Friday , where India's environment minister Anil Madhav Dave reiterated the government's resolve to double the country's tiger population through conservation and care by 2022.
Dave also appealed to tourists to visit India to see tigers. With 2,226 tigers in its forests reserves, India is home to majority of the world's wild tiger population. The minister emphasised that India is contributing significantly towards achieving the St Petersburg target, commonly referred to as the global wildlife conservation goal `TX2', which aims to double tiger numbers in the next six years.
