India has the second highest human population in the world.
But it's number one when it comes to tigers.
It's home to about half the world's tigers.
They typically live about eight to 10 years in the wild, though all tiger subspecies are endangered.
India doesn't have nearly as many as it used to, but their numbers are growing again, thanks, in large part, to conservation efforts.
Here's what one of those efforts looks like.
When people report tiger attacks, they say it came out of nowhere.
It is staggering to think that there were tens of thousands of tigers in the forests of India.
Now,there's just over 2,200, something like that.
Tigers and the Taj
Oh, that's very good. Oh, you're good.
How are things going?
How goes the fight?
It's been good.The numbers say there are 2226 tigers in India in the wild.
Who else has seen a tiger?
Lots of you.
Conflict has not really gone higher than the last few months.
Your real passion is saving tigers, through conflict resolution, there's a very visceral fear of the tiger throughout much of India.
So if one comes into a village, they're often killed.
And you go into these places and try to talk people down, try to make them appreciate the value of a forest with wild tigers.
It's all about people and their code of conduct, because you can't get people out of the forest, you can't get animals out of these human dominated forests.
This is the corridor that we've created.
You took me to this little farm you purchased between two tiger preserves and it has turned into wildlife superhighway.
When I show pictures that this is from my kitchen, I've shown that I have tigers walking here, anyhow, it freaks them out.
You're trying to convince your neighboring farmers that maybe you should stop farming and let your land go wild.
If you stop farming and if you let free forests come back and get some economic benefits from eco-tourism, it would be a win-win situation.
