ARTICLE: Tiger conservation: a game of inconsistent numbers

It’s World Tiger day today, but is it time to celebrate? Well, it depends what reports you read.

Bhutan has 100 tigers, 30pc up on a previous estimate, according to a new survey. Good news.

Bangladesh has 106, less than a quarter of the 440 estimated a decade ago. Bad news.

India’s Bengal tiger population is up 30pc to 2,226, but they are only now including all tigers in the country in the census. 

Confusing news.
