With just 1400 tigers left in the country the next few years are crucial if the national animal is to be saved from extinction and the time to act is now. Aircel & NDTV have drawn up a Tiger Agenda - urgent measures that need to be taken to address the rapidly dwindling population of our Tigers. This agenda will be taken to all the chief ministers of tiger states and they will be asked to act now on the following matters - from filling all vacancies in the forest department, to notifying buffer zones around tiger parks to taking stringent anti poaching measures.
