VLADIVOSTOK, July 20 (Itar-Tass) — Russian and Chinese ecologists will jointly monitor and protect Amur tigers and Far Eastern leopards. A corresponding agreement was signed between the Russian working group for tigers and leopards and the center of study of the cat family of the Chinese State Academy of Forestry. The document envisages joint scientific studies of the population of rare species of the cat family, exchanges of information and development of new methods of studies.
The signing of this document became one of the most important results of the sixth international ecological forum “Nature without boundaries” which concluded its work in Vladivostok on Friday. As ITAR-TASS learnt at the press center of the administration of the Primorsky Territory, the resolution, which was adopted by the forum participants and which included proposals of expanding cooperation between the countries of the Asia-Pacific region on the problems of preserving biovariety and monitoring of vanishing species, as well as prevention of waste pollution of sea waters, became another result of the forum.
“The main recommendation of experts is to intensify international cooperation in the field of exchanging of resource-saving technologies and rapprochement of points of view in the field of legal ensuring,” a representative of the regional administration said.
This year more than 300 ecologists, scientists, representatives of regional administrations from Russia, Japan, China and South Korea took part in the forum.

Participants in round-table meetings discussed the risks for the region’s environment, problems of preserving biovariety and monitoring of vanishing species, as well as prevention of waste pollution of sea waters. Two actions were held within the framework of the forum to clean the coast near Vladivostok, during which scientists could study the composition and sources of wastes in this part of the Sea of Japan.
