India to help replicate Project Tiger in Russia, China
New Delhi: Six countries, including Russia and China, have sought India`s help to replicate Project Tiger, one of the most successful conservation programmes running in the country to protect the big cats from extinction.
During the first stock-taking conference held in the capital in mid-May to review implementation of the Global Tiger Recovery Program (GTRP), tiger range countries such as Bangladesh, Nepal, Russia, Vietnam, Myanmar and China approached India to help them in conserving tigers.
India has 1,706 tigers in the wild -- the highest numbers in the world. The credit for saving tigers in the country goes to the central government`s Project Tiger, launched in 1973.
