This is a rare and exciting conservation achievement as the new estimate moves tiger numbers ever closer to the shared goal of doubling tiger populations. Over the past twelve years, tiger numbers have increased in Bhutan, China, India, Nepal, and Russia. As tiger numbers increase in some areas thanks to effective strategies and great dedication, tiger range and habitat continue to decline in most areas. We are working to reverse the trend of tiger habitat destruction and fragmentation.
Investing in Tiger Landscapes
WWF has developed a new strategy that prioritizes work in 22 tiger landscapes and helps achieve the shared vision of the Tiger Conservation Coalition. Recognizing that even as tiger numbers increase, tiger populations cannot fully recover if their range and habitat continue to decrease. Across these priority tiger landscapes, conservation efforts will be focused on:
- Securing connected habitat
- Expanding tiger range
- Managing conflict and moving toward coexistence between people and tigers
- Ending exploitation
- Unlocking sustainable financing for conservation and community livelihood opportunities
Even if the progress has been uneven and is still extremely fragile, the fact that many tiger populations are recovering is extraordinary conservation. And it’s a call to action, for greater political commitment and investments in tiger conservation.
