TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY RUPAM JAIN NAIR  "Asia-Russia-wildlife-tiger-conservation" A tiger, seen wearing a collar, is spotted during a jungle-safari at the Ranthambore National Park, around 200kms from Jaipur, on October 22, 2010.

The country is home to more than half of the world's rapidly dwindling wild tigers, but even its conservation programme, said by the government to be the world's most comprehensive, has failed to halt the creature's demise.
