In the last 100 years, we have lost over 97% of all wild tigers to indiscriminate poaching, habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict. The tiger population in 1913 was estimated to be about 100,000, which is now drastically reduced to only about 3,200 tigers in only 13 countries*. Bhutan is one of these fortunate countries where this magnificent animal can still be found roaming the forests all the way from the warm southern regions to the cold alpine forests. This great fortune of our nation was bestowed upon the present and future generations by our visionary Monarchs, who continue to symbolize the epitome of Conservation leadership for Bhutan and the Global community.
