"Tiger numbers are increasing across five of the countries where the
endangered big cat is found, conservationists have said.
The number of wild tigers is on the increase in Bhutan, China, India,
Nepal and Russia, a decade on from the launch of an ambitious scheme to
double the population of the species.
The TX2 initiative was launched in 2010 when it was estimated that wild
populations of the cat were at a historic low, with as few as 3200
animals remaining across the 13 countries where they are found. The
scheme aims to double the number of tigers in the wild by 2022."
