He began the campaign to save tigers in AsiaPodcast, Wednesday, August 01, 2012 13:08:15
13 countries from Asia, including Russia, have adopted a plan for doubling the number of tigers in the wild in 2022 in an effort to save species from extinction, RIA "Novosti." In September, heads of state will gather in Vladivostok and will formally approve the agreement. In recent decades due to population growth, entry of people into areas traditionally inhabited by tigers and their illegal killing led to a sharp decline in the number of predators.
In the early 20th century freedom was nearly 100,000 tigers, and now believe that they are less than 3500. Among the measures envisaged in the plan are more stringent penalties against poachers and banning the construction of buildings and roads and bridges in areas declared as reserves. To give a chance not just of big cats, but people have already gotten their territory, are projected to be jobs created in new protected areas and parks that make a living from tourism. Unfortunately the good intentions of the 12 Asian countries and Moscow are currently not supported with funds. Still remains a serious problem. China opposes the requirement for a total ban on hunting tigers.
