Tigers Alive Initiative Annual Report 2012 available online
The first annual report of the WWF Tigers Alive Initiative provides information on efforts undertaken and supported in 2010-2011 as well as future work.
In 2011 we worked closely with our partners from the frontlines in the protected areas to international policy arenas to better protect tigers and advance this ambitious agenda.
Moving forward, the Tigers Alive Initiative achieved success on the ground, working with partners and WWF staff to protect the sites that serve as the last refuges for tigers, and vital to doubling their numbers.
If we don’t stop poaching now, tigers will be extinct throughout most of their range by 2022.
The Tigers Alive Initiative’s Zero Poaching Action will lift the scale, intensity and professionalism of the efforts against poaching and ensure that it does not drop again.
From September 2011 – February 2013, the WWF TAI is placing a major emphasis on mobilizing efforts to bring poaching as close to zero as possible, as fast as possible.

We’ve launched an ambitious plan to save tigers. It’s based on:
- Protecting and connecting tiger habitats on a huge scale. We’re seeking to protect tigers, their prey and habitat across 12 large-scale landscapes.
- Clamping down on poaching and eliminating the illegal tiger trade that drives it. We’re working with our partners TRAFFIC to halt the trade in tigers and reduce demand for tigers and their body parts.
- Increasing political will, commitment and funding. WWF has already committed to spend US$50 million on tiger conservation over the next five years.
- Tigers are cats. With space and food, they will breed fast and freely. Their numbers can recover.

There are more tigers in captivity in the United States than there are in the wild.

Good news in the Year of the Tiger Significant progress has already been made in this Year of the Tiger including: - Nepal created the 90,000 ha Banke National Park (NP), and extended Bardia NP, greatly expanding protected tiger habitat. A survey of Nepal’s Chitwan NP counted 125 adult tigers, compared to 91 in 2009 - India surveyed tiger numbers at 1422, almost doubled the number of tiger reserves, and increased government funding for tiger conservation 10-fold - Myanmar tripled the Hukaung Valley Tiger Reserve to 1.74 million ha - Malaysia increased penalties for wildlife crime including illegal trade in tiger parts - Russia has provided political leadership in hosting the Tiger Summit, and is working with China on transboundary tiger conservation.

Tiger Summit in St. Petersburg The first-ever international summit on tiger conservation and protection will be held in November in St Petersburg, Russian Federation. Senior government officials from all 13 countries that still have wild tigers have worked throughout the year to piece together a draft global tiger recovery programme to be submitted to the Heads of Government Tiger Summit for endorsement. WWF was a key player in the effort to convene a Heads of State Summit for tiger conservation. WWF, the Russian government and the World Bank have agreed to help establish the Summit where the 13 tiger range state countries are expected to make the strongest political commitments to saving wild tigers ever seen. The summit is to be hosted by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. The 13 tiger range countries include Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Russia, Thailand, and Vietnam. This meeting perhaps represents one of the Tiger's last and best chances of survival. It is a chance for leaders to agree to giving tigers increased protection and the room to recover. A chance for them to act and double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger!
