India third tiger population

There’s no “lion” about this one.

India has reported a 33% increase in the tiger population — and it’s International Tiger Day.

Narendra Modi, prime minister of India, announced Monday that the country’s tiger population had increased to 2,967 as of 2018.

From numbers calculated by the National Tiger Conservation Authority, this was a 33% rise compared to the last tiger census in 2014.
