Tiger Tuesday Twice in One Tuesday!

Panthera & the BBC's Natural History Unit have worked together to document the first evidence that tigers can live and breed at extremely high altitudes. Tigers, normally found in jungle habitats, were discovered more than 13,000 feet high in the Himalayas. The discovery could make it easier to create a conservation corridor, linking populations across Asia. We wonder if the tigers have moved up to new altitudes due to habitat loss, or if they have been there all along?
