NEWSLINK: Rare good news for endangered big cats

The population of endangered tigers in Bhutan is over a third larger than previous estimates suggested, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) revealed today. The country is home to 103 tigers, where experts had thought there were only 75.

The new figures are the result of Bhutan's first national tiger survey, which WWF Bhutan Country 

Representative Dechen Dorji described as a "roaring success." National tiger surveys, the WWF said, are "a crucial step in the Tx2 goal" to double wild tiger numbers.
