In May, the Indian Government had warned that the situation of the Bengal tiger was critical, especially worse in the last 5 years. At the beginning of the month, a group of experts again emphasized the matter and alerted about the situation. However, it was not until recently that action was taken in this regard. Thus, 8 new reserves have been created to alleviate the extinction of this animal. It is estimated that there are only 1,500 specimens left in the world , distributed mainly in the national parks of Ranthambor and Sunderbans in India and Chitawan in Nepal.

S. Reghpathy, Indian Minister of the Environment, explained that the new reserves had been located in the center, south and east of the country. “The initiative responds to the proposals received and to the recommendation of the Project Tigre Steering Committee,” he concluded.
