The Global Tiger Initiative (GTI), with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and the government of the Russian Federation, hosted an International Forum for Tiger Conservation (also called the "Tiger Summit") in St. Petersburg from Nov. 21 through Nov. 24, 2010. At the Summit, leaders of 13 countries in the tigers' natural range met with international science and conservation experts to formally agree upon what necessary steps to take to keep the world from losing its last wild tigers. Steve Monfort, head of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, attended this historic meeting, along with Francisco Dallmeier, head of SCBI's Conservation Education & Sustainability Center, and John Seidensticker, head of SCBI's Conservation Ecology Center.
