National Geographic to premiere 'Counting Tigers' on Aug 7

National Geographic to premiere 'Counting Tigers' on Aug 7

New Delhi, Jul 29 (UNI) Home to 70 per cent of the world's tiger population, India is looking to turn the needle on the global tiger count via various conservation efforts.

National Geographic Channel, in its commitment towards conservation, announces its upcoming documentary 'Counting Tigers', which closely follows the operations behind India’s 2018 Tiger Census - a study conducted once every four years by National Tiger Conservation Authority.

The show will give viewers rare access to the operations behind this momentous exercise.

The documentary showcases the efforts of officers and forest guards involved in the process of tracking and counting tigers, including the never before in-depth tiger profiling.

It also encapsulates the use of advanced technology and efficacious methods deployed in order to up the ante on accuracy of this Tiger Census. Interesting to know that nearly 15,000 camera traps were used for capturing tiger images and recording their unique stripe pattern with the help of a dedicated software.



Riding on the spirit of authentic and trustworthy storytelling, National Geographic, through this documentary, elaborates on the current habitat and situation of tigers in India. It celebrates those officials and biologists who have taken the responsibility to conserve the tiger population and work round the clock to ensure so.



Commenting on the announcement, a Nat Geo spokesperson said, "As the world battles to save its most charismatic animal, 'Counting Tigers' showcases the intricacies of monitoring and tracking tigers and deep dives into the existing challenges that are a threat to the tiger population. Through this film, for the first time, viewers will get to understand how the Indian jungles are positively impacting the global tiger population. We are delighted to be a part of this year’s census estimation and to be able to share this incredible story with every viewer."



The documentary ‘Counting Tigers’ will premiere on August 7, at 2000 hrs on National Geographic and Hotstar.
