Sikhote-Alin Nature Reserve in Russia’s Far East became the second global site to receive Conservation Assured |Tiger Standards (CA|TS) accreditation, the highest accolade in tiger conservation site management. WWF  helped to develop CA|TS, which is a tool for monitoring and guaranteeing the effectiveness of the management of tiger sites. Sikhote-Alin follows Chitwan National Park in Nepal, which was the first protected area to be CA|TS accredited in February. Russia is now planning to roll CA|TS out at three further sites in the next six months, which will help to enhance efforts to conserve the Amur tiger. India, Nepal and Bangladesh are also planning to join the initiative, while discussions are underway in Bhutan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.
