-24 November in St. Petersburg will host an International Forum on tiger conservation in the world at the level of heads of government, to be attended by delegations of 13 countries that still have wild tigers, and countries and organizations planning Support the Tigers.

13 countries, with preserved wild tigers (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Cambodia, China, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Russia, Thailand), WWF and the people who are interested in the fate of the tiger have high hopes for this meeting which must be worked out joint solutions to conserve the tiger in the wild.

The forum is expected to adopt the Declaration of Heads of Government and the Global Programme to restore the tiger which has set goal of doubling their number to the next Year of the Tiger (2022).

The need for a forum called the catastrophic state of the tiger, whose numbers declined over 100 years in more than 30 times and the area of habitat - 15 times. Moreover, the number of tigers continues to decline. In a world now inhabited by no more than 3200 tigers, and their numbers continue to decline. There are a few examples of recovery of tigers and the brightest of them - is the Russian Far East, where over the past 60 years the number has increased from several dozen to about 500.

The Forum will be the culmination of the Global Tiger Initiative launched by World Bank President Zoellick in 2008 under this initiative preparatory meetings were held in India, Indonesia, Nepal and Thailand. All the countries have developed national recovery program tiger. In 2009, WWF Russia offered to host forum for heads of government level it is in Russia, and this was supported by the Government of the Russian Federation and other countries.

"In our country, it is also possible not only to preserve but also multiply the number of tiger, - says Igor Chestin, Director of WWF Russia. - The question here is only the political will. Russia needs to adopt already developed an action plan for Amur tiger conservation and to implement it due to radically improve the protection and allocation of funding. In this case, it is clear what to do, you just do it "(WWF With suggestions on priority measures can be found below as well as the link http://www.wwf.ru/data/species/tiger/tiger_trebovania_2010_ae_august.doc).

According to the Ministry of Russia confirmed their participation six Heads of Government, one Vice-President, 16 Ministers and representatives from some 10 countries. On the level of individuals represented about 40 leading international organizations such as the World Bank, Global Environment Facility, the International Union for Conservation of Nature, World Wildlife Fund and
