tiger population in the world to save the national programs in countries of habitat through international money, the general director of World Wildlife Fund (WWF) James Leape.

"Tigers are incredibly charismatic, and we can raise money around the world for them. But the people who live in habitats need to do more," - said Leape, speaking at the International Tiger Forum.

According to him, the global international community must come to the aid of the national program, for example, in the establishment of national parks. In this case, the overall success depends on political will in a particular state, he said. As a successful example of Leap called Russia, which is the first of the habitat in 1947 banned the hunting of and trade in tiger parts of it. This led to the fact that up to 90-s tiger population in the Soviet Union has been growing steadily and this growth is uncontrolled poaching has stopped only 90-ies. Nevertheless, established spetsinspektsiya "Tiger" was able to restore order.

"Russia and China have established cross-border cooperation to barriers to poaching. Significant improvements have also in Malaysia," - said Leape.

However, he said, the tigers are continuing to die out, despite the fact that environmentalists have 40 years of dealing with this problem.

"It all started with the trophy hunting of the tiger, which was conducted 70 years of XX century. Huge threat to the tiger now represent poachers, as well as deforestation and unsustainable land development," - said General Director of WWF.

According to him, you must first establish a cross-border fight against poachers, to increase the density of ungulates, as well as predator habitat.

"It is essential that people living with a tiger side by side, have changed their attitude towards him," - said Leape.

Everything is possible if the world at large decides to rein in the Chinese. Its a question of demand and supply. No demand who will the poachers sell to ?

I totally agree Denise,if people boycott these products knowing that everytime they purchase it a poor helpless animal loses his life no one will go after them.There are many alternatives to animal products .Also it should be illegal for designers to use animal fur.

I wrote to the WWF here in the UK to report an incident about the use of tiger bones and turtle shell and they told me they couldn't help me since they don't investigate these sorts of claims. Double standards? Care in one way, shout how wonderful you are so the world can hear you and in the quiet when people approach you with proof of abuse, you turn your back on them??
