Tiger conservation and survey training for the Central Vietnam Tiger Corridor
2001  Full Book

The Central Vietnam Tiger Corridor is a project jointly implemented by the Forest Protection Departments (FPD) of Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Nam and Kon Tum provinces and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Indochina Programme. The project has three following objectives: 1. To build capacity among forest guards in anti-poaching and tiger survey techniques. 2. To carry out surveys and inventories in the project area in order to fill gaps in knowledge on tiger populations and the various threats they face. 3. To raise awareness among communities in the project area on biodiversity conservation in general and tiger conservation in particular. This report presents the content of a training workshop for FPD on tiger conservation and survey techniques as well as the results of a short tiger survey which was used as part of the training course. The style of writing is deliberately not scientific so that the information is available to a wide audience. This is not meant to be a training manual however, it is hoped that the information presented with will be used by the participants to refresh their memory of course contents and by others to improve their skills and understanding of tiger ecology, conservation and survey methods. The results of the survey are presented within the framework of a report decided upon by the participants of the training to provide an example of how data collected during a survey can and should be presented in an accessible way.
