NEWSLINK: In search of elusive high-altitude tigers, India, Nepal and Bhutan fall back upon camera traps

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) will conduct the project in the three countries, with the Global Tiger Forum (GTF) and Dehradun-based Wildlife Institute of India (WII) playing a crucial role in synchronising the programme. To start with, experts will do the homework based on facts available this year.
