Wildlife experts have recently sighted 34 tiger cubs in a northern Indian national park. With predictions that tigers could become extinct in 20 years, the increase in the number of tigers is welcoming news.
Indian wildlife experts are pleased with the recent increase in the number of tigers at the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand state.
According to rangers, at least 34 tiger cubs have been sighted in the area. Though the 25-million-square-foot Jim Corbett National Park is a tiger conservation center, it is always under the threat of poachers.
The director of the park says the protection of the cubs is their greatest concern.
[R. K. Mishra, Director, Jim Corbett National Park]:
"The good news is the sighting of 34 tiger cubs in the park. We will pray for the safety of all these cubs and also for the increase in the number of tigers, so that more and more tourists visit the park, and also the population of the tigers remains stabilized."
The park is home to about 160 tigers, which makes it the last and most important bastion of this endangered species in India.
Wildlife experts say these tigers could become extinct in 20 years.
