In 2019, scientists in India carried out the largest and most in-depth tiger census ever recorded. The census was so big that they made an application to the Guiness Book of World Records to determine if it was the largest wildlife survey ever conduted for any species.

India is home to the vast majority of the world’s tigers, and it was shown that Indian tiger populations have seen at least a 6% increase since the last survey in 2014.

While there is still work to be done to increase tiger populations to healthy stable levels, the fact that they are increasing at all is a huge step forward!
