Protected Tigers, Burning Bright. Wildlife Conservation SocietyA tigress and her two cubs, via a camera trap in Thailand’s Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary.
Tigers have delivered a bit of holiday cheer: populations are on the upswing, it turns out, in some protected areas in India and Thailand. In a field often dominated by news of felled forests and population declines, wildlife conservationists have taken heart from this development, while noting that tigers have a long, long way to go if they are to claw their way off the endangered species list. “If the conditions are right, tiger populations can recover, though there’s still plenty of challenges,” said Cristián Samper, the president and chief executive of the Wildlife Conservation Society. “I think the encouraging news is that we now know it can work.” At the start of the 20th century, tigers numbered around 100,000 and occupied forests from Turkey to Russia to Indonesia.

Halting Lion Hunting Information, Facts, News - Where: Tanzania Grantee: Emily Fitzherbert Biologist Emily Fitzherbert has devoted her career to the study of human–wildlife interactions in the developing world and the creation of innovative and feasible solutions to the conflicts that arise.
In many pockets of Africa, lions are killed for preying on poorly protected livestock, but in Tanzania’s Katavi National Park there is a new development: the manipulation of cultural tradition. Fitzherbert’s research showed that the cultural traditions of the Sukuma agro-pastoralists living around Katavi are being twisted to incentivize the killing of lions for personal gain. In Sukuma culture, like many other communities in East Africa, there is a tradition for lion killers to visit households, perform a “lion dance,” and be rewarded with gifts for averting predation on the valuable livestock herds.
