Tigers, like most other animal population survive close to a waterbody. They need good places that they can use as caves, like old trees, rock formations, small hills, etc. where they can raise their families.

The awareness and ban on Trade in Tigers, Tiger body parts; ban on poaching, hunting of Tigers; and encouragement of conservation and breeding of Tigers are some vital measures.
