    The tiger is an endangered species, and its population has been declining rapidly in recent years due to habitat loss and poaching. According to the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), there are only around 2,500 tigers left in India. Poaching is one of the main reasons for this decline, as tiger parts are highly valued in traditional Chinese medicine and as luxury goods.

    The six poachers who were arrested have been booked under various sections of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, and the Indian Penal Code. They will face severe punishment if found guilty, which will hopefully deter others from engaging in similar activities.

    It is crucial to protect endangered species like tigers, as they play a vital role in maintaining the balance of ecosystems. Tigers are apex predators, which means that they are at the top of the food chain. If they disappear, it can have a ripple effect on the entire ecosystem, leading to imbalances and even ecosystem collapse.
