A new study suggests that wild tiger numbers could be on course for doubling. Research published in the journal, Science Advances used the latest satellite technology to study the decline in wild tiger numbers in 13 countries between 2001 and 2014. The results of the study suggested that the loss was far less than was expected. The study was ambitious, taking in vast tracts of land that spanned multiple jurisdictions which proved to be challenging. Nevertheless, the researchers are hoping they have found a solution not just for tigers but other species which are also being threatened.
Indian wildlife officials have “arrested” 18 lions as they seek to determine which of the lions is a man eater that its alleged to have killed three people. Forestry officials in Gujarat, which is a state in India where the county’s last remaining Asiatic lions live will conduct tests on the lion’s excrement and paw prints in order to identify the killer lion. Once the lion has been identified it will be moved to a zoo where it will spend the rest of its life. The other lions will be released back to the Gir Sanctuary officials say.
