Other tiger range countries are doing better conserving remaining tiger populations. Russia's May survey found 540 tigers and Nepal's last survey in 2013 found in increase from 155 to 198. Their are indications tigers are migrating and settling in remote northeastern China. Developed countries like German are willing to help range countries. The IUCN in partnership with the German Development Bank began its Integrated Tiger Habitat Conservation Program in 2014. The first projects will be launched soon. What is happening to the tiger is not unique. Other species and their habitats are disappearing at a disastrous rate. What makes this 6th extinction so tragic is that man, who has dominion over this fellow creatures, can repair the devastation he has wrought if he only commits to doing so.
