The Tiger Summit

For the first time ever, heads of government will come together for a summit that focuses on a non-human species: wild tigers. From November 21 to 24, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will host the International Tiger Conservation Forum in St. Petersburg. Representatives from the 13 tiger range countries and high-level representatives from other countries will participate in this historic event.

The tiger summit caps a year-long process led by tiger range countries to agree on how to double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next Year of the Tiger. The WWF calls this initiative Tx2. The leaders are expected to endorse an ambitious global tiger recovery program and sign a declaration committing to work together to protect tigers in the wild.
