India and Bangladesh to Participate in Global Move to Save Tigers

Royal Bengal Tiger

India and Bangladesh are both home to the Royal Bengal Tiger. The two nations share a vast stretch of mangrove forests known as the Sunderbans, which make up a prime tiger habitat. Now, the neighboring countries will be attending a tiger conservation function known as the 13-Nation Tiger Conservation Summit in St. Petersburg this September. The purpose of this meeting is to plan urgent measures to save the world's current tiger population. It has been reported that Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina may join the meeting. Other nations attending will be Nepal, Bhutan, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, and Russia. According to experts, the remaining populations of the world's tigers will become extinct by the next century unless strong and decisive measures are taken to save them.

To me, this report is a clear representation of the world's nations, known to have tigers, banding together to save the species from the brink of extinction. This will mean that representatives from each of these thirteen nations will discuss various tactics, in order to save the world's tigers. And I think they will be able to benefit from the help of tiger experts and conservationists. This way, the tiger will be saved from becoming extinct.
