Summary

Poaching is a major threat to survival of 450 Amur tiger left in the wild. To recover tiger and prey populations the project presupposes strengthening anti-poaching efforts and habitat protection in Zov Tigra National Park, one of the core tiger sites in the Russian Far East. Given the declining trend in Amur tiger numbers during the recent years, we chose the protected area as a base for population recovery and intend to take urgent measures to improve tiger protection there.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Both direct and indirect poaching is the main threat to Amur tiger survival. The Phoenix Fund focuses its conservation efforts on law-enforcement continuously providing Zov Tigra National Park with fuel, spare and repair parts to carry out regular anti-poaching and habitat protection patrols. However, at present the road through the park is almost impassable. It is necessary to buy an all-terrain quad bike to allow the inspectors to access remote areas, pursue poachers, supply food for deer etc.

How will this project solve this problem?

Providing the park with a quad bike will increase quantity and quality of anti-poaching spot-checks, especially in the sites inaccessible for vehicles, and will strengthen the protection of the territory from illegal hunting and logging. During regular patrols the inspectors will prevent or reveal any wildlife crimes in Zov Tigra and adjacent territories, take fire preventive measures, extinguish forest fires, supply forage to feeding station etc.

Potential Long Term Impact

According to tiger census 2010-2011, there are eight Amur tigers in the national park (four permanent residents and four visitors). We strongly believe that regular law-enforcement patrols over the whole territory will significantly contribute to sound protection for the tiger, its habitat and prey.
