India, Russia and China, all the three are the prominent nations of Asia. This is not the only thing common in the three countries as they are also working hard for the welfare of wildlife, especially tigers. In 1973, India launched the Project Tiger that primarily covered nine reserves. Later, it extended the reach and efforts that led to the rise of tiger count. The populace of big cats in 1973 was 1200 and in 1995 it increased to 3500. Though in the later years the number decreased to 1411, with more powerful steps it reached to 1706 in 2013.
The state of Russia was worst during 1940s, as the tiger populace was only 40. Considering the seriousness of the issue, the government focused on anti-poaching. With continuous efforts, the country is enjoying a count of 500 big cats.
Coming to China, it was witnessing the most dreadful situation of all, as tigers almost vanished. This was majorly because the parts of the striped cats were being highly used for medicines and luxury attires. For taking charge of the situation, China joined hands with CITES in 1981. Thereafter in 1988, enforcement of the wildlife protection act was another important effort taken for protection of the majestic cat. Finally, China banned the trade of tiger parts in 1993. Gradually, the nation is earning back the tiger populace.
