These tigers prove that conservation works!

As a new decade begins, we look back at some of our favourite photos of young tigers in India from Joseph Vattakaven.

India has the largest wild tiger population in the world and continues to lead the way in tiger recovery towards the global goal of doubling wild tiger numbers by 2022. On Global Tiger Day last year, India released a new estimate of 2,967 wild tigers (from a range of 2603-3346). This suggests tiger populations are stable or even growing and bring us great hope about their future in the country!
