The estimated number of tigers living in the wild rose this year for the first time in more than a century, conservation organizations said.

Wild tigers are considered endangered and had seen shrinking numbers because of hunting, poaching and loss of habitat, such as deforestation, particularly in Sumatra, for palm oil, and paper and pulp industries, the groups said. The official count had declined every year since 1900, when tigers numbered an estimated 100,000. READ MORE by clicking the article title above...
