Nepal has proven its commitment to double its tiger population by 2022, as pledged in 2010. According to the latest census, the number of wild tigers in Nepal is 355, nearly triple that of 2010, 121. It was achievable due to the Nepal government's continuous effort, conservation strategies and measures, and supporting partners' roles.

On 29th July 2022, the occasion of Global Tiger Day, Nepal has been officially declared the first country among the thirteen tiger range countries to double its wild tiger population. With delegates from several countries and organizations, Nepal organized a Global Tiger Day national celebration event in Kathmandu in the presence of the Rt. Honorable Prime Minister of Nepal.

In support of increasing the global population of Panther Tigris, the world's 13 tiger range countries, including Nepal, committed to double their tiger population by 2022, held in St. Petersburg, Russia, in the year 2010; popularly known as the TX2 St. Petersburg declaration. Nepal successfully achieved its TX2 with the solid political willpower and support of stakeholders such as conservation partners, enforcement agencies, and the local community.

Nepal has been awarded TX2 and Conservation Excellence for its outstanding progress and performance. In addition, organizations and celebrities like WWF and Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio have congratulated Nepal for establishing their promise on TX2, conservation of wild tigers.

With tiger conservation success and prestigious global achievements, Nepal has become an important international hub for wildlife tiger tourism. Parsa and Chitwan complex alone comprises a massive tiger population in Nepal. In addition, Bardiya and Chitwan National Park are famous touristic places for tiger safaris.
