Review Meeting on the NEASPEC project, “Study on Transborder Movement of Amur Tigers and Leopards using Camera Trapping and Molecular Genetic Analysis”

Date & Location : 

15 September 2015, Harbin, China

Since 2014, NEASPEC has implemented the project, “Study on Transborder Movement of Amur Tigers and Leopards using Camera Trapping and Molecular Genetic Analysis”, as a follow-up to the project on “Establishing Coordination Mechanisms for Nature Conservation in Transboundary Areas in North-East Asia” (2010-2012). Under the current project, the first expert group meeting was held in April 2014 to discuss the work plan including scientific approaches for the project activities, expected outcomes, implementing agencies and budgetary matters. Upon the agreements, project activities including camera trapping and sample collection have been conducted since late 2014. 

This review meeting is the major occasion for key experts of the Project to get together and review the interim outcomes of the field study and molecular genetic analysis prior to the completion of project activities as well as preparation of policy recommendations and the final project report.
