Wild Cats population on the rise in Nepal

24 October 2020 # Hope

Nepal has taken great strides towards saving tigers from extinction by nearly doubling its population of the big cats in the space of nine years.


Officials announced that the tiny Asian nation now has an estimated 235 wild tigers, up from 121 in 2009. This chimes with the target set in 2010 at the St Petersburg tiger summit, which brought together representatives from all 13 countries that are home to tigers. At the summit, nations pledged to double the world’s tiger population by 2022 under a strategy known as the Tx2 goal.
