The dwindling wild population of Bengal's numbers between 1500-1900 in India, 440 in Bangladesh, 125-299 in Nepal and 7-80 in Bhutan. The remaining number of Bengal tigers are held in captive populations.

Mr. Buntung and Mrs. Kartini became the proud parents two months ago of Roy and Joy, born at the Bali Zoo. The fecund couple now lead a growing family of 12 tigers, prompting the people in charge at the Bali Zoo to undertake the construction of a larger exhibit to house this sizeable streak of tigers.

Meanwhile the tiger keepers are delighted by the two newcomers, Joy and Roy, shown on Balidiscovery.com who have arrived “just in time” to help the Bali Zoo celebrate its 9th anniversary and welcome the many visitors expected over the year-end holidays.
