India now accounts 70 percent of the world's total population of tigers, the environment ministry said while releasing its fourth detailed national tiger estimation report. The report compares information gathered during tiger surveys of 2006, 2010 and 2014 with data from the 2018-19 review to estimate population trends, patch colonisation and extinction rate. According to the report on the condition of all 50 tiger reserves, Madhya Pradesh has the maximum number of tigers followed by Karnataka. The report also evaluates the status of habitat corridors that connect major tiger populations while highlighting vulnerable areas that require conservation. The report, for the first time, also includes details on tiger abundance within pockets in tiger reserves.
