Currently 75% of the world's tigers are found in India.
Project Tiger is a centrally sponsored scheme of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change launched in the year 1973.
Under this, tigers are provided shelter in the national parks of the country.
International Tiger Day:
'International Tiger Day' is celebrated every year on 29th July to raise awareness about tiger conservation.
Celebration of International Tiger Day was started in the year 2010 at the time of 'St. Petersburg Tiger Summit'.
The 'St. Petersburg Declaration' on tiger conservation was signed during the 'St. Petersburg Tiger Summit'.
