World Tiger Day 2023 celebrated in in Nepal

The seventh world Tiger day is being celebrated in Nepal and elsewhere with the theme of 'Human - Tiger Coexistence'. The Global Tiger Day is observed on July 29 every year with an objective of spreading public awareness for Royal Bengal Tiger conservation.  Nepal has been the most successful in increasing the number of Tigers from 121 in 2009 to 355 in 2022. With higher density of Tiger, challenge ahead for 13 Tiger countries is to mitigate human Tiger conflict.

355 wild Tigers in Nepal

There are 355 Tigers in Nepal as per the Nepal's National Tiger and Prey Survey 2022. 

The number of wild Tigers increased by almost three times than in 2009. 

The number of tigers in Nepal increased to 355 from 235 in 2018. The incredible increase of 120 Tigers just in four years makes Nepal the most successful country in Tiger conservation among the other Tiger range countries. 

Nepal successfully achieved its target of doubling the Tiger population by 2022. Nepal made the commitment of doubling its Tiger population by 2022 with 12 other Tiger range countries in the first Tiger summit in 2010 held in Petersburg. There were only 121 Tigers in Nepal in 2010.

Nepal became the first among the other Tiger range countries to achieve its target of doubling the number of Tigers by 2022. 

Human Tiger Conflict 

With the amazing in population of Tiger in the last 12 years, conservationists are worried about increased human Tiger conflict. About three people on average are killed each month by Tiger in Nepal. Nepal has reached the limits of its carrying capacity for the big cats. The new total is just about 45 Tigers less than the country's carrying capacity of 400 tigers.

The Bardiya National Park is one of the best wild reserves for the endangered big cats.

Nepal had signed ‘St Petersburg Declaration on Tiger Conservation’ with comitment to double the Tiger population by 2022. The global Tiger population has been reduced to 3,000 from 1,00,000 in last century. India has seen 30% increases in Tiger numbers since 2010.
The conservationists said that the initiative taken to make their participation and investment of revenue from tourism made it possible. Earlier, Tiger fear made some people even support poachers. In last few years, conservationists worked with people, built electronic fence, worked on increasing employment and revenue through tourism and gave bigger portion of the revenue to locals.
