What is Youth Tiger Summit?
World leaders will meet at the heads of government World Tiger Summit in St Petersburg, Russia from 15-18 September 2010 to lay out agenda for the recovery of tiger population throughout their range. As part of the Summit process during this Year of the Tiger 2010, WWF is organizing a Youth Summit to reach out to the youths of the world so they can have a voice in this important conservation effort of this endangered species.
Young people – Youth Tiger Ambassadors (age 18 to 20) from tiger range countries and countries that support the conservation of tigers – are invited to Vladivostok, home to the Amur or Siberian tiger, in Russia Far East for a for a Youth Summit from 12-18 September 2010. The Summit will provide them with the opportunity to learn more about tiger conservation along with their fellow youths from other countries and discuss ideas on raising awareness of the tiger. They will visit the habitat of the Amur or Siberian tiger, be taken on a tiger trail, and get first-hand information about the state of the wild tiger population and necessary measures for their conservation measures.
At present tiger populations are plummeting rapidly, driven by massive forests destruction, lost of natural prey species, poaching and illegal trading. The global wild population may now be as low as 3,200, down from an estimated 100,000 at the beginning 20th century . In Indonesia, only about 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild and they are struggling to survive.
WWF is inviting two delegates from each of the tiger range countries and those countries with no tigers of their own but are helping to save the tiger, to attend the Youth Tiger Summit. WWF-Indonesia is inviting two talented- creative youths to the summit as the ambassadors of sumatran tiger conservation efforts.
