Virtual Discover India Series - The Bengal Tiger
Monday, May 9, 2022
From Tony the Tiger on cereal boxes to Hobbes the beloved stuffed tiger in “Calvin and Hobbes,” the tiger has long been a fixture in American culture and commerce. The Bengal Tiger (Panthera Tigris Tigris) is an object of fascination for its power, agility, and grace, but in their original home ranges in Asia, they are threatened by habitat loss, poachers, and fragmentation of territories. A concerted effort to protect and increase the tiger population in India has been highly successful. India is one place in the world where you can easily visit and see a tiger in the wild.
