Bareilly: A total of 126 deaths were recorded in 2021, the highest in a decade.
Data originating from the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) until December 29 this year revealed that 60 of 124 large cats that died fell prey, accidents and human conflicts outside the protected area.
According to the Census 2018, India is home to 2,967 tigers.
NTCA has maintained a note of death tiger in public since 2012.
TOI has reported in October that victims in 2021 could be the highest in a decade because they had reached 99 on September 30.
The number in 2016 was almost as high, at 121.
This year’s picture has raised alarms, with experts calling for strict conservation efforts, especially in places such as forest reserves.
Statically, Madhya Pradesh, with 526 tigers, has the highest losses in 42, followed by Maharashtra, which has 312 tigers, at the age of 26, and Karnataka, which accommodates 524 tigers, at the age of 15.
Uttar Pradesh, who recorded nine 173.
The numbers can be higher because NTCA uploads data after further verification.
However, experts believe that the death toll could be higher.
A senior official who works with the Ministry of Forestry on TII, “This is the actual number of deaths Higher.
“The official said that the hourly need was to ensure a better conservation plan to reduce human conflict.
He added that this could be done by ensuring a clear hallway for animals to migrate to other forests.
“Tigers can include hundreds of miles looking for their territory, provided they have a clear corridor,” he said.
Many experts believe that the situation is worried about the wildlife habitat shrinking.
They said humans put great pressure around the forest area ordered, which in turn had caused a clogged forest corridor.
When the tiger population exaggerates, cannot move to another habitat.
Experts say animals have tried to adapt to the situation in their own way.
Above, more than two dozen tigers live in sugar cane or social forestry areas.
This has increased challenges for people and the Ministry of Forestry.
The Director of the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve Field, Sanjay Pathak, said that “the tiger population (has) increased rapidly, which is why the toll road, too, is likely to increase when death is a natural phenomenon.”
