Inof Vladivostok last week discussed a new edition of the state of Russia's strategy for the conservation of the Amur tiger inhabiting Primorye and Khabarovsk regions. The strategy became one of the main themes of the international conference "Amur tiger in the north-eastern Asia: problems of preservation in the XXI Century "organized by the Far Eastern Branch of RAS, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). In Vladivostok, the profit of more than 100 experts from all 13 countries of the world, where even wild tigers. You could consider this conference as a preparation for the Global Tiger summit to be held in Vladivostok in September 2010. It is assumed that the fall in the Primorye will come Prime Ministers all "tigronosnyh" countries.

At the beginning of XX century in the wild, there were about 100 thousand tigers, but so far the world remains more than 3 thousand individuals. Four subspecies of tiger extinct. Amur tiger sub-species virtually disappeared from the Korean Peninsula in the North-East China has only about 20 individuals. Number of Amur tiger in Russia (Primorye, Khabarovsk Krai) also decreased to a minimum of 30-40 individuals by early 1940's, but thanks to the efforts of government, academia and civil society organizations has been restored and stabilized at the level of 400-500 tigers. Nevertheless, the most recent data show a decline in Russia's mackerel stock. "Disasters do not, but just spent monitoring shows: the Amur tiger population has declined by about 15%, which causes us grave concern", - said the director of the Amur branch of WWF Russia Yuri Darman.

A new strategy for the conservation of the Amur tiger in Russia, considered in Vladivostok, after processing must be approved by the Government of Russia to the Global Tiger Summit 2010 Russia has already been formally approved by the current document, supported by legal and financial decisions. "Protecting the tiger - it is not only the protection of the tiger, - says Director Biology and Soil Institute FEB RAS, Academician of RAS Yuri Zhuravlev. - Without the protection of habitat, further protective measures would be unable to maintain a high population size of tigers, as well as other very important predator - the Amur leopard, which is even more difficult circumstances than the tiger. "

Indeed, if the tigers in Russia, there are several hundred, the leopard - no more than 40, all of which are concentrated on a narrow patch of southwest Primorye. But it is there, in the Khasan district, planned gas pipeline, which could, according to scientists, only exacerbate the situation. They offer not only the correct route of the pipeline, but a moratorium on logging of Korean pine in the Maritime region, in order to preserve the traditional habitats of tigers and leopards and their prey - ungulates. "We now clearly articulate what must be done. Among the priority measures - to save the environment, and this is cedar, oak, dark coniferous taiga. Economic activities in the coastal forests should be strictly and re - regulated. What is happening now - is a direct path to extinction, and most of the taiga, and rare species living in it ", - considers Academician Zhuravlev.
