There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to radio-collar a wild tiger? Join us this Monday at 11 AM ET (8 AM PT) to hear first-hand stories from tiger biologists and researchers in Bhutan about their experiences on the front lines of tiger conservation, followed by a LIVE Q&A with the researchers!
Tiger Tales from Bhutan is a free event, but availability is limited so click the link in the bio now to register!


@Rishi @Ashutosh @GuateGojira @peter @tigerluver and for anyone else interested.
This may be a good time to ask about weights, measurement protocol and any other things that you're interested in about these rarely studied Tigers.

One of us will do. My proposal is you contact them on size, activity patterns and interactions with humans and other animals. Bhutan tigers seem to be somewhat different from others. Could be a result of adaptation, but there could be other factors we're not aware of. Maybe you can ask them if they're related to other populations. Good find.

Guys, they wrote wrong... 11am of Eastern Standard Time is 8pm in Pacific Time.

Won't be morning for you but late afternoon to evening, from Europe to Americas.
Match your time zone with it & you'll get your local time. It's about 9:30am for India & Bhutan.

I hope they will be able to give some information regarding sizes of particularly North Eastern and Bhutan tigers.

Did someone register for that?

So I attended the Bhutan tiger conservation webinar

It was mainly about what steps they have taken to conserve tiger population and mitigate human-wildlife conflicts

Wild dogs and Tigers are a big reason for dwindling livestock in Bhutan. They are forced to hunt livestock because of lack of natural prey.

There are many conservation areas in whole of Bhutan right now and multiple corridors. 
According to their latest survey, in the south of the country, an average Tigress range is 20 sq. km and for a male is 80 sq. km. In the north of the country, its very different. Its 80 sq. km for females and 
almost 200 sq. km for males.

Also, the highest altitude for tigers ever recorded was from Bhutan, at 4600m above sea level. Tigers here regularly go at higher altitudes.

Current population estimates give around 100 tigers, and with one of the biggest live breeding population of 40-60 females. 

I did ask question about genetics and morphology and size of these tigers and it was saying that Mr. Tempa wanted to answer my question but the webinar was ended right there.
Missed it

Darn, I thought it was tonight.
At least you got to listen, bummer they weren't able to answer in time.
