Bikin Tiger Conservation Project

Conservation of a natural forest area serving as habitat (biodiversity hotspot) for Amur tiger and snow leopard under a JI forest conservation project. The project is financed through the International Climate Initiative of the German Government. The JI project seeks for a LoA from the Russian government. Certificates will be sold either as ERUs and/or to the voluntary market. The project applies CCB and VCS quality standards.

The Bikin Tiger Conservation Project is currently expanding in the region with a new project dealing with: 

  • Implementation of new protected areas (forest conservation) -  minimum of 100,000 hectares
  • Improved forest management of Nut Harvesting Zones - minimum of 350,000 hectares
  • Developing Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification in timber concessions together with Russian companies with the objective of setting up a network of set aside (conservation) areas within the concession areas - minimum of 1 million hectares

This project will be developed as one comprehensive REDD+ project for the voluntary market until 2015 (financed again by the International Climate Initiative of the German government).
