Tiger Conservation Efforts – Project Tiger, etc.

Biologists question claims on wild tiger population

  1. What? Tiger biologists are not fully convinced of the April 10 report of the World Wildlife Forum and the Global Tiger Forum
  2. Report: The world’s wild tiger population is increasing and on track for doubling in a decade
  3. Why? Use of flawed survey methodologies
  4. Rigorous scientific studies in India, Thailand and Russia demonstrate that tiger recovery rates are slow
  5. Also that it is not likely to attain levels necessary for the doubling of wild tiger numbers within a decade
  6. Impact: It can lead to incorrect conclusions, an illusion of success, and slackening of conservation efforts
