Tigers are integral to the idea of India, and with plummeting numbers in the past, wildlife conservation became a top priority. Many charities, foundations, and campaigns were set up for the benefit of the cause of increasing tiger population and today the efforts have come to fruition, especially in light of this wonderful image of a tigress and her cubs shared on Twitter.
This is magical picture. Count the #cubs with #tigress. I know for a reason how few people will be elated after seeing this. Efforts are helping in making this species bounce back from verge of extinction. PC Siddharth Singh. Magical Terai. pic.twitter.com/ZIaMlUAxBj

Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer, Parveen Kaswan shared a beautiful picture of a tigress walking with her five cubs in the Terai region in Uttarakhand, that brought joy to the internet as it alluded to more safe environments being created for the mighty and majestic animal!
Terai has been recorded with the highest ratio of tigers in India, with figures that rose from 79 in 2014 to least 119 adults in 2018 alone. This population boom has happened in the vast Terai region of Uttarakhand’s Western Circle and a heterogeneous and complex landscape in the area has made it possible.
