Desolation of Royal Bengal Tiger by 2070

The Royal Bengal Tiger is mostly target to the hunters and brokers as it looks very beautiful and the price is also very high. The number of these animals in the Sundarbans has been reduced to 5/1 due to deforestation, lack of food and environmental degradation. 

Sundarbani is the last refuge to the Bengal Tiger in Bangladesh. The UN says that due to rising sea level and climate change, the existence of Royal Bengal Tiger in the Sundarbans can be extinct. If the climate changing trend continues, this tiger may not be seen again after 2070.

A new research report on the diversity and ecology of the United Nations has emerged. The report was published on Monday in the New York Times.

It is said that due to climate change and sea level rise, the Sundarbans may disappear forever. There are about one million plants and animals at risk of extinction due to climate change. Violent creatures like tiger, lion, jaguar, leopard and mountain tigers are all scientifically included in the Big Cats species. The Royal Bengal Tiger is also in the list. These tigers live in the Sundarbans spreading over four thousand kilometers of Bangladesh and India.

According to a report of 2010 World Wide Fund for Nature, 96 percent tigers of the Sundarban could be extinct within a few decades if the height of the sea increased by 11 inches. The analysts say, the number of Royal Bengal Tigers in the Sundarbans is declining. At present, there are 440 tigers in the part of Bangladesh in the Sundarbans.
