New population of rare tigers found in eastern Thailand
A new breeding population of the critically endangered Indochinese tiger has been found in a national park in eastern Thailand, conservationists say. Camera traps discovered a small population with at least six cubs in the jungle. Poaching and the loss of habitat has reduced the global population of the sub-species to under 250. Conservationists said the success was due to the stepping-up of anti-poaching efforts in Thailand.
