The population of the Amur tiger, registered in the International Red Book and inhabiting Primorye and Khabarovsk Territories, decreased by 15%, said on Thursday in Vladivostok, the director of the Amur branch of World Wildlife Fund (WWF) of Russia Yuri Darman.

Environmentalists in Russia and abroad on the scientific-practical conference, which ends on Thursday in Vladivostok, discussed the problem of preservation in the Far East, Amur tiger. According to the latest census, in these two regions, the number of tigers is 450 - 500 individuals.

"Last year, the results of monitoring showed almost catastrophic decline in numbers (the Amur Tiger - ed.) Virtually all indicators on the test sites, so the social organizations have begun to sound the alarm," said Darman told reporters.

These data have caused a lot of doubt, for this reason was conducted more detailed account, "said Darman.

"At the conference coordinators of all monitoring sites reported the situation: it is better than last year, but the very decline of about 15% there. No Holocaust, but the downward trend, there are serious," said the director of the Amur branch of WWF. These are preliminary data, "people five days ago came out of the forest" - added Darman.

He noted that previously there were differences concerning the methodology for monitoring, but now this problem is solved. "To come to a harmonization of methods and have attracted government bodies: the special inspection" Tiger "and Rosprirodnadzor," said the head of the Amur branch of WWF.

Currently in India, where dwells the largest number of tigers, their numbers in the period 1995-2005 decreased from 3.5 thousand to 1.3 thousand. In several parts of tigers have disappeared entirely: in the Caucasus, Central Asia, the islands of Bali and Java. Now tigers remain in the territory of 14 countries, including Russia.

In Russia, currently inhabited by the largest population of tigers in the same areas (more than 450 tigers, or about 11% of world population). This was possible thanks to taken in the 1950 - 1980 of measures, including a complete ban on the production and trapping of tigers, a network of specially protected natural territories and research.
