Thankfully, there is hope for these animals. The Wildlife Conservation Society recently announced that tigers are making a comeback in India. In the southwestern area of the country, tiger numbers have increased nearly 50% in the past decade.

news just in shows that improved poaching controls have resulted in a dramatic increase in tiger populations!
Score one for the big cats! (not sure how much of this will print, it's truncated posts in the past)

Dec 27, 2012 1:52:00 PM by N.B.

Tigers in three key reserves are gaining ground, according to The Wildlife Conservation Society. Improvements in law enforcement have played a large role in protecting these tigers from poachers, one of the tiger's greatest threats to survival. Anti-poaching measures range from better patrols in the tiger reserves to stricter sentences for those found guilty.

Poachers look for an easy profit by illegally killing tigers and selling their parts for expensive traditional medicines. Though these medicines are completely ineffective, they are a popular and expensive status symbol, and many believe in their powers despite scientific evidence to the contrary. According to Tigers in Crisis, the costs for these quack remedies range from hundreds to thousands of dollars.

But with protective measures in place, some tiger populations have a better chance to survive and thrive. The tiger population in the Western Ghats region of India has increased by 50% in the last decade due to strong anti-poaching efforts. The Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary in Thailand has a confirmed record count of more than fifty tigers in the last year. And the Central Ussuri Wildlife Refuge is a new wildlife corridor that will link existing tiger populations in Russia to some of the best tiger habitat in China.

As 2013 begins and we face new challenges in the preservation of habitat and rare species like the tiger, stories such as these encourage us to redouble our efforts. Wildlife Conservation Society President and CEO Christian Samper reminds us, "Tigers are clearly fighting for their very existence, but it's important to know that there is hope."

Thanks for posting, signed.... This is good news, but as long as Asia keeps demanding products from tigers, as long as their habitat destruction continues, and as long as the population continues to grow like it is actually, there is no way they can be saved. It is heartbreaking, but it is the truth.
