Eye on the Tiger?

At the turn of the 20th century, according to sources, India had an estimated 40,000 tigers in the wild.

In 2002, based on pug mark census, this number was 3,642.

As per the monitoring exercise by Wildlife Institute of India in association with National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), Government of India using camera traps, in 2008 we were left with only 1,411 tigers. This number is so small that they will be gone soon if we don't wake up to the crisis.(AFP Photo)
