The Royal Bengal Tiger

The Sunderbans support one of the largest populations of Royal Bengal Tiger. These man-eaters who have often been the harbingers of death in these parts also at the same time give the place its fundamental character of existence. However recent years have witnessed sharp decline in their numbers. In August 2004 there were in total approximately 256 individuals in Sunderban which in the current year (2013) have been estimated to be only 103. The predominant reasons behind this drastic downfall are poachers and an acute scarcity of food. However recently another significant reason behind this decline has been brought to notice by the research conducted by scientists at the Cardiff University, UK. According to them the absence of enough genetic variation among tigers is the real culprit. Only 7% of the numerous genetic variations that could be found among tigers even hundred years ago are found to exist now. The absence of enough genetic variations, have strongly affected their mutation, adaptation and their hunting techniques. Genetic variation determines the chances of any species to exist on this planet. Those species who display the maximum diversity in genetic variation have better of existing that the others. In case of tigers this signifies them as being in the way of extinction.
