This data set displays 29 Tx2 Tiger Conservation Landscapes (Tx2 TCLs), defined areas that could double the wild tiger population through proper conservation and management by 2020. The number of wild tigers has declined from an estimated 100,000 in the early 1900s to a current estimate of around 3,500 adult animals. In response to this rapid decline, government officials convened in November 2010 to endorse the St. Petersburg Declaration, pledging to double the wild tiger population by 2020. To aid in this effort, Wikramanayake and his team conducted a landscape analysis of tiger habitat to determine if a recovery of such magnitude is possible. They identified 29 Tiger Conservation Landscapes with potential for doubling wild tiger population with proper conservation and management.
