On September 5, 2022, a postage stamp dedicated to the 2nd International Tiger Forum was put into postal circulation in the framework of the joint issue of the Russian Federation with the countries that are the tiger distribution area

The 2nd International Tiger Forum is intended to summarized the results of the Global Tiger Recovery Program adopted in 2010 and outlined further goals and particular actions to ensure the conservation of a sustainable tiger population in the world.

The 2nd International Tiger Forum will be held on September 5, 2022, on the launch day of the Eastern Economic Forum that will bring together country leaders, representatives of relevant ministries and agencies, scientists and international experts in the field of endangered species protection.

Since the 1st Forum in 2010, tiger-range countries have made significant contributions to the Global Tiger Recovery Program and developed national programs and strategies for tiger conservation.

The countries of the tiger distribution area have increased the protection of the species and its habitats, stepped up the fight against poaching, and have been carrying out systematic work to resolve conflicts between humans and tigers and to provide ecological education for the population.

The measures taken have made it possible to increase the total number of tigers in the wild. However, the situation with the tiger abundance and its trend varies from country to country.

The 10 countries participating in the joint issue are as follows: Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Kingdom of Cambodia, People's Republic of China, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Republic of the Union of Myanmar, Russian Federation, Republic of India, and Republic of Indonesia.

The postage stamp of the Russian Federation provides an image of an Amur tiger and the Forum logo.
