PREDATOR OR PREY !!!!

HALF OF THE TIGERS POPULATION OF THE WORLD IS IN INDIA.. BUT THERE ARE STILL A LOT MANY STEPS TO BE TAKEN TO SAVE THIS ANIMAL..

THE FIRST CENSUS ON TIGERS WAS DONE WAY BACK IN 1973 UNDER THE PROJECT TIGER.. NUMBER ESTIMATED WAS 1827 THAT TIME.. BUT THERE WAS A RISE IN THE NUMBER OF TIGERS TILL 2002.. THE NUMBER CAME UP TO 3700 BY 2002..

IN 16 OF THE COUNTRIES 28 TIGER RESERVES ESTIMATES INDICATE A FALL OF 50% IN THE NUMBER OF TIGERS IN 2006-2007..


TIGER POPULATION IN MADHYA PRADESH AND CHHATTISGARH IN 2002 WAS ESTIMATED TO 710 TIGERS .. BUT NOW IT HAS FALLEN TO 290 (DECLINE OF ABOUT 61%).. MAHARASHTRA HAS 95 TIGERS IN COMPARISON TO 238 IN 2002.. WHEREAS RAJASTHAN HAS 32 TIGERS LEFT OUT OF THE 58 IN 2002..

A FINAL CENSUS IS EXPECTED TO COME BY THE END OF 2007..

THE MINISTRY OF ENVIORONMENT AND FOREST HAS TERMED THIS REPORT UNOFFICIAL.. WII IS A PART OF THE MINISTRY AND THE GOVERNMENT HAS SANCTIONED Rs. 130 MILLION FOR THE CENSUS.. THEN HOW CAN IT BE CALLED AN UNOFFICIAL REPORT..
