The population of wild tigers had dropped by more than 95 per cent since the beginning of the 20th century. When the global tiger numbers in the wild hit an all-time low of as few as 3,200 individuals in 2010, the governments of all 13 tiger range countries came together at the world’s first-ever global tiger summit and agreed on a “TX2” commitment to double the number of wild tigers by 2022.

Since then the tiger population has increased in several countries including India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Russia.  The Pilibhit Tiger Reserve (PTR) and the Uttar Pradesh Forest department last year bagged the first-ever international award, TX2, for doubling the number of tigers in four years against a target of 10 years.
