Tiger tourism in the Bangladesh Sundarbans
Tigers are iconic tourism attractions. They are rare and endangered, with ∼3000 left worldwide (WWF, 2015). They support substantial tourism industries, which can also contribute to conservation by generating public concern and political support, funding local employment or livestock compensation, and reducing poaching (Buckley, 2013; Buckley & Pabla, 2012). Here we examine tiger tourism in the 6000 km2 mangrove forests of the Bangladesh Sundarbans.
