ZSL – Phoenix Fund Talk – Amur Tiger Conservation in Russia

The Phoenix Fund is an important partner for 21st Century Tiger and ZSL in Russia.
Victoria Malchanova, Projects Coordinator at Phoenix Fund, visited 21st Century Tiger recently to give an update on work in the Russian Far East funded by your donations. Local government anti-poaching teams are being provided with equipment necessary to compete with the well-resourced poachers. Implementation of the patrolling software MIST has shown initial success in collecting data from field patrols in two protected areas. Analysis of this data will help design the projects for the future.

Dice – Camera trap image from Kerinci Seblat National Park

Image from a 2011 project repeating DICE’s camera trap work from 2006 (undertaken with grants from 21st Century Tiger) and enabling a rigorous evaluation of tiger, prey and threats from this specific area in Kerinci Seblat. On a wider scale, it will provide valuable information for the other key tiger areas in Sumatra.

Riding the logging train into Berbak National Park

The forests of Berbak in Jambi Province where this project is focused are actually part of an even larger block of swamp forest that extends into the neighbouring province of South Sumatra, totalling a block of forest of around 5-6000 square kilometres. As such, the area represents one of the largest Tiger Conservation Landscapes in Sumatra still listed as ‘data deficient’. But this area is under threat; between 1990-2000 25% of the forest was lost to illegal logging, clearance and fire. Current work by ZSL, under funding provided by 21st Century Tiger, confirms that not only are tiger numbers extensive, but also that threats and conflicts are escalating at a worrying rate.

This ZSL project aims to set up the foundations required for a Wildlife Crime Unit in conjunction with government authorities. It will utilise existing members of the Berbak National Park forest police and the local wildlife authority police to form the core of the Berbak wildlife crime unit. ZSL will be the facilitator of the team through a Wildlife Community Officer.
