India’s tiger population tops 3,000, survey finds

India’s tiger population has climbed to 3,167 in 2022, according to the latest census released by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the country celebrates 50 years of its tiger conservation project.
From 2006 to 2018, the tiger numbers almost doubled to 2,967 and are now well above 3,000, according to the census data released on Sunday in the nation that is home to 70 percent of the world’s tigers.
But some communities living near reserves say the project has displaced Indigenous populations, and is forcing tigers into closer contact with humans.
