Conserving tigers

entertainment Updated: Nov 20, 2010 01:21 IST

A tiger, seen wearing a collar, used to map its location, was spotted during a jungle safari at the Ranthambore National Park, around 200kms from Jaipur. The collaring drive is part of a tiger-saving initiative.

Efforts to save the tiger, set to be addressed at a conference in Russia this month, will depend for a large part on the success of the shield India has attempted to throw around the animal.

The country is home to more than half of the world’s wild tigers, but even its conservation programme is said by the government to be the world’s most comprehensive, has failed to halt the creature’s demise.
