Today, in the New Year on the Chinese calendar, WWF sums up the year of the Tigris and thanked supporters and partners, without whom success, the tiger would be impossible.

Never before has the fate of a rare species of animals has not been so riveted attention of the public and governments.

The central event of the year Tiger was the International Forum on tiger conservation , which was held in St. Petersburg Summit on 21-24 November 2010 This was the historic Declaration and Programme for tiger conservation in the world. Heads of government delegations and 13 states gathered tiger range to take the decisions necessary to save the tiger and the doubling of its population by 2022 - the next Year of the Tiger. Participating Countries Forum: Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Cambodia, China, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Russia, Thailand, Korea.

Simultaneously with the forum in St. Petersburg, Vladivostok was a youth forum on tiger conservation , which brought together young leaders from the same 13 countries.

On the eve of the Forum was published with trategiya tiger conservation in Russia , which will coordinate all necessary measures to protect the Amur tiger.

In the Year of the Tiger WWF formulated 8 measures necessary to conserve the Amur tiger:

1.Strengthen the environmental control
2.Toughen penalties for illegal trade, possession and transportation of tiger skin, his body parts and products from them
3.A ban on felling of cedar
4.To increase the number of wild ungulates
5.Alleviate the conflict between man and tiger
6.Complete the formation of a bound system of protected areas (PAs).
7.Implement a program of Russian-Chinese border cooperation.
8.To ensure that Russia Action Plan for the Amur tiger conservation which will include all these measures, and provide a significant portion of their funding from the federal budget
In the past year much has been achieved, namely:

•The cedar was listed as a banned felling of rocks
•The Government gave instructions to strengthen the environmental control
•Increased funding to work with ungulates
•Taken in environmental rent one of the most valuable areas Bikinsko nut-fishing zones - nearly 500.000 ha in the Bikin River basin, and prepared the documentation to incorporate the territory into Bikin UNESCO World Heritage Site
•Prime Minister V. Putin promises given by the Russian-Chinese cross-border cooperation programs and assistance to China in the reconstruction of the Amur tiger population in Changbai Mountains
•Action Plan for the Amur tiger conservation is under consideration, the total funding for tiger conservation in Russia increased.
"International Forum on tiger conservation and a program to restore its strength - it is a huge step forward - said Igor Chestin, Director of WWF Russia . - But this is only the beginning. Now we need to combine efforts by countries and partners around the world to turn the momentum and the promises made in 2010 into real action to preserve and increase the number of tigers. Tigers no longer have the time, so now we can not rest on our laurels. "

As part of the campaign WWF held a number of outstanding shares - both during a rally Tigers in "the projection of the tigers" skimmed "by the Kremlin wall, and other landmark buildings in Moscow and St. Petersburg; staff WWF« escorted the "messengers of Amur tigers from papier-mache who came from Vladivostok to Moscow and then to St. Petersburg to attend the Forum, and now everyone can take part in actions "Adopt a Tiger" and turn into a tiger, having participated in Internet stocks , "Accept wild type - Keep a wild look! ".

WWF thanked partners for their support, without which the year of the Tiger would not have got so bright - but first and foremost M. Video, NOMOS-BANK and The Seventh Continent. Total partner companies "adopt" about 120 tigers .

WWF also says a huge "thank you" for supporting the proponents of Commons, who took an active part in the Year of the Tiger - because "adopt" a tiger 102 (and continue to adopt!) , for having stood in the huge figure of a tiger on the Sparrow Hills, voted for a ban on felling of cedar and danced for Tiger Ball WWF and funds for firefighting equipment on the ground tiger in the Far East.

So happy about year of the tiger to get more notice of the decline of how many left in the wild. Hopefully, the protection of the tigers will continue.

Yes! We also need to draw attention to rabbits used for experimentation, food, fur, caged as "pets" until they are no longer of interest....Year of the Rabbit can bring about change for all sweet, sentient beings who have their rights to self-determination taken from them by limited MAN, from the wisdom of Unlimited Nature.

Noted with thanks-- all animals deserve to be saved- but some animals are just magnificent and the tiger is own of them
"Tiger Tiger. burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye.
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"
