There are as little as 100 Royal Bengal tigers now living in Bangladesh’s Sunderbans forest which is much less that what was previously through according to the latest data.

It is estimated that on the Indian side there are about 74 tigers left.
Elephants, tigers and rhinos could all be saved from the threat of poaching by a collar which monitors their heart rates combined with a video camera and a global-tracking device. According to Paul O’Donoghue, chief scientific adviser for British conservation company Protect, the instant a poaching event occurs, the heart rate monitor will trigger an alarm that pinpoints the animal’s location within a few metres. This essentially means park rangers can be at the scene of the event within minutes by helicopter leaving not enough time for poachers to harvest the animal parts or make an escape.
