The St Petersburg Summit on the Tiger, hosted by Premier Vladimir Putin, and attended, amongst others, by Chinese Premier, Wen Jiabao, Bangladesh Premier, Sheikh Hasina, Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio and top model, Naomi Campbell, has ended with a pledge from a number of funding sources of $380 million.

The funds will be used to support the strengthening of tiger reserves, such as Sundarban Mangrove Forest in Bangladesh, to crack down on poachers, and provide financial incentives for ‘good neighbour practices’, such as those already becoming established in the Sundarban to support alternative income flows for human populations of reserve areas.

Meanwhile, the Bangladesh Forest Department has continued its work in the area, supported by Sundarban Tiger Project, which is financed, amongst others, by US Field and Wildlife Services, and Disney Wildlife Conservation, with a programme of training in Tiger capture and immobilisation in order to remove over close wild beasts from the human communities as an alternative to beating the beasts to death.
