Here, in the 2018 Final Report, we bring you highlights of Phoenix’s efforts taken in 2018 to ensure a future for the Amur tigers and leopards in the Russian Far East.

With the support from the WildCats Conservation Alliance (formerly Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance), Phoenix and its partners have had considerable success in implementing an anti-poaching program of comprehensive law enforcement developed around SMART. The biggest advantage of law enforcement monitoring is the opportunity to measure and compare both efforts and results. Together these data provide a more realistic picture of true poaching pressures, and an accurate portrayal of anti-poaching efforts and successes (or failures, as the case may be).
