Tigers in India
In a tropical rainforest in Maharashtra in the west of India, tigers have been spotted again for the first time in thirty years.
For years, environmental experts assumed that tigers had become entirely extinct, due to poachers.
Now it appeared that some animals have kept quiet in the forest. These animals seemed to have reproduced. It is estimated that there are at least twenty tigers in the rainforest.
Half of all living tigers can be found in India. Nevertheless, the animals are facing extinction. Biologists estimate that there are only 1300 to 1500 tigers left worldwide.
