Official figures reveal India's tiger population has increased by 20% in the last four years
However, the Ministry has warned that although tiger numbers have increased, they are still in danger due to a 12.6% loss of habitat. This has resulted in more of them being cramped into a smaller area and raising risks of big cats straying into human settlements.
Renowned artist and conservationist David Shepherd, founder of 'TigerTime', a movement to prevent the extinction of the tiger, says on the TigerTime website that, "The staggering growth in the human population throughout the tiger’s range countries means less and less space for the tiger and the depletion of its prey forcing it into conflict with humans."

Mike Baltzer, head of wildlife organisation's Tigers Alive Initiative said,"With these two vital conservation ingredients, we can not only halt their decline, but ensure tigers make a strong and lasting comeback."
