There are more Royal Bengal tigers in the Sundarbans than was earlier thought. Exceeding the estimates of the 2011 census, West Bengal's Forest Department has announced that the minimum identified tiger count in the unique natural habitat stands at 103.

Finally! India is taking responsibility by assessing the Bengal Tiger population in the Sundarbans. Ongoing studies will reflect that their numbers are growing and hopefully they prey will be 'enhanced' in numbers.
Thanks Cher.
