The population of Tigers is growing in India according to the latest figures released from the Indian government.

The numbers show that India now has almost a third more tigers than it did four years ago.

The population has risen from 1,706 in 2011 to 2,226 in 2014.

India’s environment minister said that better conservation efforts were helping the tigers and the results are excellent.

It is thought that India is home to around 70% of the world’s tigers.

The census was done by using cameras to estimate how many are living in the wild.
