There are 274 tigers in the
Sundarbans and between 12 to 16 at the Buxa Tiger Reserve, a
much better figure than the census conducted six years ago,
West Bengal Forest Minister Ananta Roy said today.
A tiger census in Sunderbans,
the world`s largest mangrove forest, ended today during which
data and scats for DNA samplings of the big cats were
collected for the first time.
