Environment ministers of 13 Asian countries are to meet in Hua Hin during 27 - 29 January to discuss plan to increase tiger population in Asia during this decade. Representatives from Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Russia, Thailand and Vietnam will try agree how to protect the endangered species of tiger by urbanization, deforestation and poaching.
The world's tiger population is estimated at just over 3000 today and participants hope that the population of tigers will double within 10 years. The high-level meeting in Hua Hin will be followed up by the world's first Tiger Summit in Vladivostok later this year.
