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. Efforts to save the tiger, set to be addressed at a conference in Russia November 2010, will depend for a large part on the success of the shield India has attempted to throw around the animal. 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.
