According to a survey on tigers in the Sundarbans, carried out by German tiger expert Hen Reeds in 1975, there were 350 tigers in the mangrove forest.

A study on the Sundarbans in 2017 by Kent University in the UK, said the number of tigers in the Sundarbans is 121. So the number of tigers in the Sundarbans has fallen by one third in 42 years.

According to a tiger census in 2004, the number of tigers was 440 in Bangladesh. In another tiger census in 2015, the number of tigers decreased to 106.

Commentary

Bangladesh faces many challenges when it comes to tiger conservation.

Climate change, industries and poaching to name a few.
