CULTURE AND TIGERS OF INDIA Print This Page Email To A Friend

India Wildlife Tours
The Tiger is undoubtedly one of India's most famous assets. We grow up reading stories of Tigger and collect stuffed versions of them at the end of the bed, so whilst the mention of a tiger may conjure up fond memories for most, few are aware of its plight or how numbers have drastically diminished over the last century.
At the turn of the 19th century the first ever Tiger census was taken for India and it was estimated that over 40,000 existed. In 1972 another census was taken and the number had plummeted to just 1872, a shockingly low figure. The Tiger has been heavily poached for its fur and medicinal qualities and the countries booming urbanisation has threatened the Tigers' habitat.
