Meet the New Laureates
Russia, Sergei Bereznuk. This Russian conservationist and ecologist of 51 years has struggled for 17 years to save Amur Tiger. He believes that the two most important elements for the survival of this subspecies,IWC Ingenieur Replica
also known as the Siberian Tiger, are the effectiveness of anti-poaching and education. These elements are at the heart of his IWC Replica Watches Award-winning Project.
95 percent of Amur's remaining population lives in the Russian Far East. These tigers are "critically endangered" despite the fact that there have been several years of conservation efforts. However, they remain at risk due to poaching. Sergei Bereznuk sees the Amur Tiger as a powerful driver in the conservation of the ecosystem, the Taiga Forest. Bereznuk is the director of Phoenix Fund, an environmental NGO that works with six people to conserve the largest tigers in the world. The Phoenix Fund covers 166,000km2.
Barbara Block, United StatesBarbara Block, a professor in marine biology, has developed innovative electronic tags for tracking fish below the water. She and her team are working together to create the technology that will allow the observation of hotspots along the coast of North America in order to preserve marine predators.Longines Replica Watches
These predators (such as tunas and sharks) are essential for maintaining the delicate balance in ocean ecosystems. Their numbers have been drastically reduced by overfishing and habitat destruction, as well as pollution.
Scientists who want to establish large marine protected areas face a major challenge in finding the right locations.IWC Replica Watches
This is because it is difficult to follow highly migratory species. Barbara Block combines the most advanced ocean observing systems, computational methods and sensor technology to provide data about the sustainability of both protected and exploited marine predators.
