New Delhi, June 4 (PTI) Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh on Thursday reviewed efforts being undertaken for conservation of tigers in the country.

The minister met Rajesh Gopal, member secretary of National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) along with other officials and sought details on the measures being taken to protect the royal predators whose count has declined to 1,411 as per latest official estimate.

Mr. Ramesh, who took charge of the ministry last week is scheduled to visit a few tiger reserves in the country soon.
