In recent years, tiger populations in the wild have shown encouraging signs of recovery. In 2024, the number of tigers continues to grow thanks to effective conservation programs and international cooperation. Let's take a look at how this has been made possible and what measures are helping to conserve these magnificent animals.

Historical context and issues

Tigers have always symbolized strength and majesty, but their numbers declined catastrophically in the 20th century due to hunting, habitat loss and illegal trade. At the beginning of the 21st century, there were only about 3,200 tigers left in the wild in the world.

Key efforts.

Success in increasing tiger populations has been made possible by international efforts and political will. In 2010, 13 tiger-habitat countries signed the St. Petersburg Declaration on Tiger Conservation, committing to doubling tiger numbers by 2022. This goal, known as 'Tx2', has been the basis for many successful initiatives.

Protection of habitats.

One of the most important aspects of a successful tiger conservation program is the protection of their habitat. Infrastructure development and urbanization often lead to forest fragmentation, which threatens tigers. Creating and protecting ecocorridors allows tigers to move freely between forest areas, which helps increase their numbers.

India and its progress.

India, home to about 80% of the world's tiger population, plays a key role in their conservation. According to data released in 2024, India's tiger population has grown to 3,682 individuals, a significant increase from previous years. New reserves such as Veerangana Durgavati Tiger Reserve are helping to protect more tiger habitats.

Programs in other countries.

Other countries have also seen successes in tiger conservation. In Nepal, tiger numbers have increased by 60% in the last ten years due to increased conservation and community involvement in a tiger protection program. In Russia, home to the Amur tigers, the numbers of these rare animals are steadily increasing due to strict anti-poaching and forest conservation measures.

Use of modern technologies in the protection of tigers.

Modern technology is playing an increasingly important role in tiger conservation. The use of monitoring drones, camera trap systems and satellite tracking help to effectively track the movement of tigers and prevent poaching. These technologies allow scientists and conservationists to obtain accurate data on tiger numbers and behavio.


Tiger population growth in 2024 is the result of coordinated efforts at the international level, the involvement of local communities and the use of modern technology. Despite significant progress, conservationists still face many challenges. It is important to continue working to conserve tigers and their habitats to ensure the long-term survival of these majestic animals.
