The WWF is focused on tiger protection on 12 priority tiger habitats from Russia to Indonesia and from India to China. The WWF is active in a total of 10 of the 13 tiger range states and in most countries has good contacts with decision makers in politics, but also projects to Tiger conservation.
The WWF projects in the field aimed primarily on maintaining the habitat of tigers and to link them together again:
In Cambodia, a new sanctuary was reported last year.
Surveys of the WWF in the Thai Kuiburi National Park on the border with Myanmar to show that the tiger population is stable there. Traces suggest that the big cats have even expanded their territory since 2006.
In the Russian Far East, about 2.5 million hectares of forest will be certified as FSC areas in tiger habitats in the coming years.
The WWF was able to lease the jungles around the Bikin River for 49 years. This brings two times earnings: on the one that retains the Amur tiger's habitat, and on the other hand, the natives of the region, the Udege and Nanai, stay in their home and continue to live according to their centuries-old culture.
In India, there are a number of tiger projects and the recent tiger census shows that in almost all Indian areas increases the tiger population.
In India, 39 tiger reserves have been established with up to eight other reserves in various stages of expulsion. Around half of all wild tigers in the world is India.
WWF supports anti-poaching units
In addition to the shrinking of habitat, poaching is the second main cause of the global decline of tigers stocks, so we support in many countries, the successful use of anti-poaching units. The WWF Germany concretely supports the training and equipment for anti-poaching units in the Russian Far East in Thailand and Sumatra.
