Tiger populations growing in the wild

Words by Abi Scaife

Wild tiger numbers have increased in India and Bhutan.

Great! Tell me more.

It’s no secret that tigers have been endangered for a while - but some incredible people and charities are putting in a huge amount of effort to help conservation efforts.

Their hard work is clearly paying off, as this year (2023) India counted an average total of 3,682 tigers - making it home to 75% of wild tigers. Plus, in Bhutan, they counted 131 tigers.

That may not seem like a huge number initially - but it means that the number of tigers in Bhutan has risen 27% since 2015!

That’s amazing!

It really is! Though the numbers still seem small, and there’s a long way for us to go, it shows that we’re on the right track in helping to protect and restore these amazing creatures.
