NEWSLINK: ‘Concerted efforts needed for tigers' protection'

The number of tigers is dwindling fast with a majority of deaths of big cats being caused by poaching and destruction of natural habitats worldwide. Administrative will power, execution of laws, creation of awareness and people’s cooperation are needed to protect the big cats.

Experts opined this on the occasion of the International Tiger Day and Van Mahotsav held here on Monday jointly by Orissa Environmental Society (OES), the Even Green Forum and the Shatakshi Mahila Sangathan.

According to the speakers, there were a total of 3,890 tigers leaving in various jungles and zoos worldwide by 2016. With 2,226 tigers, India contributed 70 per cent the world’s big cat population. Odisha had a dismal number of 28 tigers by that period.
