Buffer-zone count makes Sunderbans tiger roar.

The Indian Sunderbans’ healthy increase in tiger count is mainly because of an unprecedented — almost unbelievable — more-than-fourfold jump in big cat number outside the tiger reserve area.

A detailed analysis of the tiger status report, 2018 — a quadrennial exercise — has revealed that the Indian Sunderbans logged a 16% growth in big cat population.

The numbers are better this time but it is important to look beyond numbers. Some long-term problems remain and they need to be tackled if we are to have a healthy, sustainable Sunderbans.

Commentary

With the last count of tigers India noticed that the Indian part of the Sundarbans hosted more tigers in the buffer zones compared with the latest count.
