A recent survey conducted on the tiger population in all Indian National parks and other tiger habitats has thrown a pleasant surprise for animal lovers, there has been a increase of 12% growth in the tiger population. India takes the pride in announcing that current numbers of tigers in India are estimated to be 1706, thus making it the largest sanctuary in the world. Project Tiger, the effort to conserve the Tigers and the ecosystems, which support the tiger population, has yielded very encouraging results.
