NEWSLINK: Sunderbans now happy hunting ground for tigers; numbers go up

For the second year in a row, tiger population in the Indian Sunderbans has shown an increase. This year, a camera-trap exercise has captured at least six more tigers in the mangroves.
According to a forester associated with the exercise, 87 unique frames were captured by the camera traps in the mangroves, including the tiger reserve area and the South 24-Parganas forest division. The count was 81 last year. The latest exercise was conducted between December 2016 and June this year.
