Description

more
Tiger Conservation Landscapes (TCLs) are large blocks of contiguous or connected area of suitable tiger habitat that that can support at least five adult tigers and where tiger presence has been confirmed in the past 10 years. The data set was created by mapping tiger distribution, determined by land cover type, forest extent, and prey base, against a human influence index. Areas of high human influence that overlapped with suitable habitat were not considered tiger habitat. Tigers require a large area to survive. Accordingly, habitat loss is a major cause of the species’ rapid decline. Before this data set, many countries containing tigers did not have spatially explicit tiger habitat maps necessary to develop habitat conservation and management plans. Among others, this information gap was an impetus to developing the TCL data set.
