Nepalese government claims its tiger population has doubled since 2009
According to the Nepalese government, the number of tigers in the country has doubled since 2009. If true, this is a major victory for the tiger and for the government of Nepal, since in 2009 there were only 121 tigers in the jungles of Nepal. Now, there are 235. The government claims that the increase is the result of “initiatives from the government, conservationists and local authorities who have worked for years to increase the tiger population in the Himalayan nation.”
