At the National Tiger Protection conference in Vladivostok, Russia's new estimates were known, it is feared that a declining trend in the stock Amur tigers. According to projections from the environmental group WWF, the population could be decreased by up to 15 percent. The WWF also makes for a hard winter, the lack of forestry and hunting management of the Russian authorities responsible for this development.
"With a dedicated conservation work, the population of a few dozen could rise again, now running about 450 copies. But is this unique success is now threatened, "warns Frank Mörschel by WWF Germany at the conference.

The WWF welcomes the Memorandum of Understanding, the number of tigers in Russia's forests in the medium to long term, increased to 700 animals, but these words should now urgently be followed by deeds. "The success story of the Amur tiger in Russia will continue only if the poaching is curbed and strongly opposed," says Frank Mörschel. In addition, the density of prey - such as wild boar, deer or sika deer must be increased - to give the big cats an adequate food base. Also it was necessary to stop the massive illegal logging of precious mixed forest with old oak and Korean pines. But by many reform projects, the relevant Russian authorities, forestry and hunting, as currently paralyzed. "The number of foresters and gamekeepers reduced massively in recent years and its powers are too limited," warns WWF expert Mörschel. The inadequate state controls would make illegal logging and poaching feed.

The WWF is pleased that was set with the closure of Russian Tiger Conference, a process that are at the end of a national strategy to protect tigers, which will be approved by the Environment Ministry in Moscow, and equipped with significant financial resources. At the same time a moratorium on the logging of Korean pine was necessary. In addition, the WWF hopes to see further protective effects, if the region around the River Bikin perhaps this year is declared a Unesco World Heritage Site. "The area is Russia's last unspoiled wilderness. Here are a number of strips around the Amur tiger, "says Mörschel. (WWF)
