It is great to finally hear some good news on the conservation front, but.... Is it wise to tell the poachers there are now more tigers to kill?

Just a thought! AJ

I think the poachers know anyway.  Higher #s is good news @PHALANX.

A World Wildlife Fund report last week about increasing tiger numbers has been criticized as 'a disservice to conservation.

I heared many cases this year where a tiger was found dead ...not sure if they were due to poachers...

India has the most accurate figures. There are camera trap images of over 80% of the tigers that are reported from India. The number of tigers that a reserve like Ranthambhore (where I live) has reported, is in reality, almost 10 less than the actual number. The big threat for tigers is not poaching but habitat loss. Poachers will not wipe out tiger but global economic growth surely will.
