Are there any laws in place to protect tigers?

    Yes, definitely.  The Indian government has passed laws as far back as 1972 that outlaw illegal poaching and trade in tiger parts.  The 1972 law is known as the, “Wildlife Protection Act”.  In 2003 the law was given greater teeth (pardon the pun) by increasing punishments for offenders.  Also, the, “Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Act of 1994” provides greater funding for monitoring of tiger populations.  The law has also been continued into 2002-2003.  The goal is to stop international trade in animal derivatives as well as ensuring a vibrant wild population.
