Abstract

Poaching of tigers and their key prey threatens the survival of tigers across their range. This

in the Sundarbans Reserved Forest of Bangladesh, to help better design and direct future

prey and an approach to killing tigers by poisoning prey carcasses with a Carbofuran

snare sets to kill tiger prey. With an average of 23 snare loops/snare set, this is equivalent

Poachers selected sites that tended to be away from guard posts, and close to river banks,

current poaching pressure is likely to have contributed to a recent decline in relative tiger

countries, and using remote camera traps set up around snares and poisoned baits to help

investigating the methods, intensity and distribution of poaching, that could be replicated

levels over time.
