Karine Aigner

Safari jeeps and tourists surround a tiger in Ranthambore National Park, in Rajasthan, India. The park was declared a tiger reserve as part of Project Tiger, a national effort to conserve the endangered big cats. It’s now home to about 58 tigers, after years of poaching caused their numbers to dwindle. New studies show that tigers in the park may be affected by inbreeding, a result of being isolated from other populations.
