ARTICLE/VIDEO: Bengal Tiger Population Faces Crisis: Limited Gene Flow

The populations of the Bengal tiger are gradually decreasing due to the limited flow of the genes between these endangered species. The crucial fact surfaces in the western Himalayan foothills.

The Bengal tiger is one of the most numerous tiger subspecies in the world. A recent study explores that the gene flow of this wild creature in the two reserves situated in the Terai Arc Landscape is very slow. The said Terai region is located in the foothills of the western Himalaya. According to WWF, these wild animals basically exist in India and a small population is present in Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh, China, and Bhutan.
