Why are tigers still the endangered species after 40% increase in population?

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has said in its red list that out of 147517 listed species, there are 41459 such that are in endangered species. In this, even after increasing the population, tigers are still included. While 40 percent increase in the population of the tigers is good news for conservationists, while the extinction of tigers suggests that there is still a lot of work to be done in this direction.

Due to climate change and human activities, it has become difficult to live not only the climate of the earth but also the wildlife. For this, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), lists such organisms that have become extinct, which are on the verge extinction, which are threatened with extinction and which are vulnerable. This helps environmental conservators and experts to work in the right direction for the conservation of wildlife. Now there is good news for them, the union has found that the population of tigers has increased by 40 percent compared to the year 2015, but they still remain in the category of endangered.

This is good news for conservationists because according to International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) today, between 3726 and 5578 tigers are roaming in the world’s forests. The Red List released by IUCN states that currently out of 147517 listed species around the world, 41459 species are in the threatened category. A new investigation has revealed that the reason for the increase of 40 percent in the population of tigers is their better monitoring. This shows that there are more tigers in the world than was being thought. And this number is either stable or increasing.

While reassessment confirms that tigers are still classified as endangered according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUNC)  Red List, their increasing population trends indicate that the IUCN Integrated Tiger Habitat Projects like the conservation program are successful and if efforts like conservation are successful, then improvement id possible.

The institute has also prepared a list of some of the challenges faced by the world’s tigers, especially Panthera tigris species. This include hunting of tigers, habitat degradation and their destruction due to increasing pressure from farming and human settlement. Dr John Paul Rodriguez, head of the IUCN species Survival Commission, said the improvement in tiger populations shows that the complex challenge of conservation can be solved.
