Tiger census results to be out by month end
New Delhi: The preliminary results of the tiger census will be released by the end of November, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said Friday.
"The broad preliminary numbers of the tiger population in the country will be available by the end of November. The final results will only be possible by early next year," Ramesh told reporters here.
The last census in 2005-06 showed a sharp fall in tiger numbers. The census then conducted with an improved method revealed India had just 1,411 tigers left in the wild, raising serious concern about their survival.
