Parveen Kaswan, an Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer who frequently shares fascinating facts about wildlife, recently took to X (formerly Twitter) to share a picture of a “hardworking” tigress who was taking care of her six cubs. On Monday, he posted a touching image of the tigers while they were taking a bath in a lake. The fact that this species was previously in danger of going extinct but is now “doing fine” makes every conservationist smile, Mr Kaswan said in the post.
“Scenes like this make every conservationist smile. Imagine this species was on the verge of extinction once. Now doing fine. A mother tigress overlooking six cubs, while they are taking a good bath. A hardworking mother indeed. Somewhere from a tiger reserve in India,” Mr Kaswan said in the post.
