During one of the field trips to Lazovsky district the members of the Phoenix Fund and a tiger specialist spent a few days in the Zov Tigra national park in the Milogradova river area. The visit was timed to a meeting with managers and law-enforcement teams of the protected area to present them a report on anti-poaching activities developed on team's performance results through MIST law-enforcement monitoring system.
After a very fruitful meeting we decided to take a walk along the river and found tracks of a female tiger with a litter of 3 cubs in the park. The park's staff also got several camera traps photos of a female that looks to be lactating and seems to be the mother. That's definitely great news for the park and we wanted to share the news with everyone who supports our project at GlobalGiving. The tracks of the big male and lots of tracks of wild boar, elk, lynx, and even a brown bear are found everywhere in the protected area which means the effectiveness of protection is increasing!
