The country has definitely earned merits for tiger conservation with new figures of the wild animal in Nepal reaching 235. The last tiger survey conducted in 2013 brought the population of tigers in Nepal to 198. This remarkable increase suggests that the country is heading to meet the TX2 target of doubling the tiger population by 2022. That’s four more years left for us. We better get this! Huge well done to the efforts and work of conservation organisations and communities living alongside the wild animal.
Unfortunately, conservation work hasn’t always been smooth-sailing. The country recorded 14 tiger deaths in 2016 attributing to various different causes. The most recent tiger survey was conducted between November 2017 to April 2018.
