Tigers on the rise

 For The First Time In A Century, Wild Tiger Numbers Are On The Rise

But it seems the tide may finally be turning for the majestic cat. On Sunday, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) announced that wild tiger numbers were on the rise for the first time in over a century.

Agreed Ags!

I have been on a Tiger watch in north India, riding on an elephant and seeing them in the wild. It's something special!
