Doubling of India’s Tiger Population Between 2006 and 2019 a “Good Sign”

So, it's always a good sign if endangered species are, in fact, being protected, Haq told reporters on Tuesday.

The doubling of India’s tiger population between 2006 and 2019 is being welcomed as a “good sign” by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, according to his Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq.

“We have a Sustainable Development Goal which encourages the preservation of biodiversity and of all species including, in particular, those that are endangered. So, it’s always a good sign if endangered species are, in fact, being protected,” Haq told reporters on Tuesday.

On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the nation’s tiger population had reached 2,967.
