International Tiger Day: Wildlife photographers express admiration for majestic wild cats through pictures

The International Tiger Day is celebrated annually on July 29 to help spread awareness about the need to protect tigers. Losing 90% of their natural habitat, there are only 4000 tigers left across the globe. In the beginning of 20th century, the wild tiger population dropped more than 95%, which led to the creation of International Tiger Day. 

The day was first marked in November 2010 at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Sumit? in Russia, which aimed to promote a global system for protecting the wild cats and also to raise public awareness and support for tiger conservation issues around the world. 

Along with India, 12 other countries participated in the Summit – Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and the Summit host Russia. 

The Summit began with a goal to increase the tiger population across the world to over 6,000 by 2022, which is the next Chinese year of the tiger. 

Contributing to 75% of world tiger population, India stands strong with 2,967 tigers across the countrys jungles. To conserve the wild cat, India’s Tiger Project was established in 1973 with 9 tiger reserves and today has 50 such reserves looking after the countrys tigers. 
Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand is home to nearly 200 tigers and with the highest tiger density in India at 14. Nagarhole and Bandipore reserves in Karnataka have 127 and 126 tigers. There are no tigers left in Mizoram’s Dampa, West Bengal’s Buxa and Jharkhand’s Palamau reserves.
With an intention to show the majestic beast in all its beauty on International Tiger Day 2020, Nagpur wildlife photographers Amit Shelke, Aditya Mune and Yash Chopda shared their pictures, through which they captured the beauty of the striped wild cat from jungles across the country. Here are the pictures!

The much-awaited iPhone 14 series has been launched on September 7 at the ‘Far Out’ tech event. However, to much dismay, some serious issues are being faced by the buyers. Some users have complained about camera shaking and grinding sounds on their iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

The major complain is of the camera capturing blurry and shaky recording while using third party applications such as Instagram, Snapchat, Tiktok and more. While the primary camera seems to work fine, issues reported pertain to camera feature by third-party software.     

Apple YouTuber Luke Miani has shared a video on Twitter demonstrating the issue. The shaking of the camera lens as well as the buzzing sound is visibly discernible after he opened Snapchat on his new iPhone 14 Pro Max.

 

On September 19, Apple released iOS 16.0.1 to address data migration, authorization and photo issues with the iPhone 14 series. The company has officially confirmed issues with iMessage and FaceTime.

As users wait with bated breath, it is to be seen whether the software updates by Apple is able to solve this issue before the shaking camera lens lead to any major trouble with the phone.
