Getting Climate-smart with the Royal Bengal Tiger in Bhutan: A Species and Climate Change Brief for the Vanishing Treasures Programme

United Nations Environment Programme (2020)

This brief is one of three in a series that also includes the mountain gorilla and the snow leopard, produced under the Vanishing Treasures programme. Its goal is to highlight how climate change is – and will be – impacting the conservation of the Royal Bengal tiger in Bhutan. The brief examine how climate change has multiple, and often interacting, impacts on the Royal Bengal tiger – be it directly on its physiology, i.e. on the ecosystems and prey species on which the Royal Bengal tiger depends, or indirectly on the behaviour of humans living in their surroundings – with important feedback loops that directly affect their conservation.
