Tracking tigers is best done within environments that are known habitats for them, as those tracking and tagging them are likely to be able to deal with the largest number of animals at any one time. Therefore, tigers are often tracked and tagged within the confines of a national park or reserve. Its natural habitat is in India, China, Russia and Southeast Asia, so research and tracking is generally conducted in these areas.
