Inspanningen achter stijging tijgerpopulatie India veelbelovend

Het recente nieuws dat de wilde tijgerpopulaties in India zich herstellen, getuigt van de grote inspanningen die in voorbije jaren zijn geleverd voor bescherming van de soort.

Zonder valse bescheidenheid kunnen we stellen dat het herstel van de tijger in India – het land waar nog de meeste tijgers in het wild leven –voor een belangrijk deel te danken is aan het samenwerkingsverband van de Wildlife Trust of India en het IFAW (WTI-IFAW), dat verschillende deelstaatregeringen ondersteuning heeft geboden.

A parliamentary committee report published today (Tuesday) is damning in its criticism of the Government’s handling of the controversial badger culls.
