New Population Of Rare Tigers Found In Eastern Thailand

A new breeding population of the critically endangered Indochinese tiger has been found in a national park in eastern Thailand, conservationists say. Camera traps discovered a small population with at least six cubs in the jungle. Poaching and the loss of habitat has reduced the global population of the sub-species to under 250. Conservationists said the success was due to the stepping-up of anti-poaching efforts in Thailand. Counter-trafficking organisation Freeland and Panthera, the wild cat conservation group, conducted the survey with the support of the Thai park authorities. Until this find, only one other breeding population of Indochinese tigers - also in a Thai national park - was known of.
