The CA|TS Report 2022: 10 years of Conservation Assured Tiger Standards

Posted on

Conservation Assured | Tiger Standards (CA|TS) started with a simple aim – to contribute to the many efforts around the world to secure wild tigers. But such tasks are never so simple to implement. 

Developing CA|TS over the last ten years has involved a substantial collaborative effort in standard-setting, advocacy, software development, training, fundraising, and more. The sites and people involved have represented a significant commitment in supporting national systems to implement CA|TS.
This report tells the story of the CA|TS journey from an idea to a global partnership of countries, sites, experts and conservation organisations implementing this mission across the tiger range. 
  1. 128 tiger conservation sites from seven countries are registered with CA|TS.
  2. CA|TS Registered and Approved sites cover 25% of the tiger range but include about 75% of the global tiger population.
  3. 21 sites have been CA|TS Approved, which signifies they have reached the globally agreed management standards for wild tigers or are in the final stages of approval.
 "At the heart of tiger conservation is protecting and managing the sites and habitats that support tiger populations. Assured effective management of these sites is the most crucial step to halt tiger population declines and lay the foundation for tiger recovery.

In 2022, the second Global Tiger Summit will be held in Russia to assess the progress made and improvements required to conserve this iconic, endangered and conservation dependent big cat. CA|TS Approved sites will both lead the way and set the standard for future tiger conservation." Stuart Chapman, Lead – Tigers Alive, WWF and CA|TS Executive Committee.
