Endangered tiger sightings in Thailand raise hopes of conservation

Jul 29, 2020 10:49 IST

Raising hopes for the conservation of tigers in Thailand, endangered tigers were spotted for the first time in four years in the western part of the country. The tigers were caught on camera and the footage has been released to mark the International Tiger Day on the 29th of July. The three young Indochinese tigers were captured using remote cameras in February and March and rekindle hope for the country. They are estimated to be about 160 Indochinese tigers left in the wild in Thailand. They are also found in Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and southwestern China. The total population may only be around 350, according to the World Wildlife Fund.
