  1. Context: Combodia is trying to get some tigers from India introduced into its eastern region
  2. Why? Wild Tigers were declared ‘functionally extinct’ recently in Combodia
    World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF): Though there are genetic variations in Asian tigers (Bengal, Malayan, Indochinese and Amur), these from India or Nepal are best suited for the Cambodia plan as they are likely to acclimatise to dry forests
  3. India: Open to the idea, but wants several conditions for the safety of the tigers to be addressed
  4. Risks: Safety, adaptability to the forests, low prey density and lax enforcement of anti-poaching laws
