Phoenix has been supporting the Khabarovsky anti-poaching team of Inspection Tiger since 2001. The team consists of three experienced rangers and covers the southern part of the Khabarovsky region and northern border of the tiger habitat. In 2002 alone, the rangers confiscated three tiger skins from local villagers. Since its establishment, the team has drawn over 250 citations for violations of hunting regulations, confiscated 100 illegal rifles, 103 fishing nets and rescued several orphaned tiger cubs. Occasionally, the team is involved in the investigation of conflict tiger cases. The rangers also give lectures on ecological and nature conservation problems at local schools.
