Thailand’s Tiger Club Says Wild Tiger Population Growing

Must read

The Department of National Parks and Wildlife and the Tiger Club report, Thailand has at least 177 Indochinese tigers roaming the wild this year. This is an increase of 17 tigers from last year.

According to Tiger Club, the Indochinese tiger population increase reflected Thailand’s success in protecting the species. However, Thailand needs to continue cooperating with other state and private agencies and civic groups to conserve the tiger’s habitats and natural resources to maintain their population.

Tiger Club says Thailand is among 13 countries participating in the declaration’s conservation program that aimed to double the tiger population by 2022.

Under the plan, the Department of National Parks and Wildlife has increased patrols in forest reserves. It has also raised awareness and forged cooperation with communities and public and private sectors to protect the wild tigers.

Tiger CLub says the protection efforts have been boosted by greater knowledge about the big cats, surveillance technology, and the establishment of tiger patrol inspection centers.

Netnapa Ngamnet, assistant Kaeng Krachan National Park chief, said the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation arrested a total of 36 big cat poachers in Thailand’s national parks between 2019 and 2021.

The world-heritage listed Thungyai-Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary in the West, home to 89 tigers, is one of Thailand’s largest wild tiger habitats. According to the department, there were only 42 of them in 2010.

Phetchaburi’s Kaeng Krachan Forest Complex, which was recently designated a Unesco World Heritage Site, now aims to increase the wild tiger population.
