    Not a word about the effects of this or any fire on tigers, or what the prospects are for tiger futures, (for those interested in investing)?

    11 years ago I read a series of authoritative-seeming articles that said if current trends continued tigers could be extinct in 12 years.

      Tigers are on the IUCN endangered “Red List”, and only a few thousand of these magnificent cats left. No Tiger deaths reported yet – but early days – we will just have to wait and see, at least the fire is reportedly been put out now. Let’s hope the Tigers remain safe in some quarter.

      “The forest fire could have dire consequences for wildlife. Tigers are integral to the national park, and are probably already affected due to the fire that raged. The forest is known to have about 7-8 tigers per sq km. It is a favourite among wildlife enthusiasts. In 1968, it was declared as a national park, and then a reserve in 1993.”

      One early attempt at establishing a tiger reserve failed because they put in too many tigers: Tigers don’t share territory.
