Good News of the Day:Tiger Populations Are Growing!

Good News of the Day:Tiger Populations Are Growing!
The World Wildlife Fund announced Sunday that for the first time in 100 years the numbers of endangered, wild tigers is increasing! "After a century of constant decline, global wild tiger populations are on the rise! According to the most recent data, around 3,890 tigers now exist in the wild—up from an estimated 3,200 in 2010. We can attribute this updated minimum number—compiled from national tiger surveys—to rising tiger populations in India, Russia, Nepal, and Bhutan ; improved surveys; and enhanced protection of this iconic species. “This is a pivotal step in the recovery of one of the world’s most endangered and iconic species,” said Ginette Hemley, senior vice president of wildlife conservation at WWF. “Together with governments, local communities, philanthropists, and other NGOs, we’ve begun to reverse the trend in the century-long decline of tigers.

DSC_0324
India is home to 70% of the world’s remaining tigers. These majestic cats have been making a fantastic comeback due to conservation efforts after being on the verge of endangered just 20 years ago.

This blog is going to focus specifically on the national parks of Madhya Pradesh (MP), considered the epicenter for tiger sightings in India. MP is also great because they offer full day permits if you’re really interested in seeing tigers. You get...

A Day in the Life of a Jungle Safari in India

tiger-rocks7
Days spent on jungle safaris in India are different than any other you’ll experience on your adventure. With a minimum of 2 nights at a lodge and 3 nights highly recommended you’ll fall into a routine. You wake up with the sun and fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and a full belly. You'll spend hours riding around in a jeep searching for animals and hours relaxing in your room or by the pool. I’ll try to outline to the best I can what a typical day looks like in the jungles of India. Note: These were the times for when I was visiting in October. The times change with the season as the park gate opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. In the heart of winter, you’ll find later start times and earlier exit times. 5:00 – Wakeup knock on your door. 5:15 – Tea, coffee, and snacks....
