Global Conservation Assured | Tiger Standards (CA|TS) accreditation
CA|TS is a conservation tool which is accepted globally. This tool sets best standards and practices to manage the tiger population of the world and encourages their assessments for benchmarking of progress. It is being implemented in around 125 sites in seven tiger range countries. India has the highest number of 94 sites, out of which assessment of 20 tiger reserves were completed this year. Currently, the country has 51 tiger reserves which are spread across 18 states.
Protection and preservation of tigers are very important for the maintenance of the entire eco-systems and all species of fauna and flora. Hence, a balance between conservation and development as well as maintenance of the tiger population is very necessary. Infrastructures should be developed so that the tigers can be conserved and their population can be increased.
