Thank you for your commitment to the conservation of the Amur leopard! Let me know if “Beautiful Trade” needs information and wants to ask me questions. If you could let me know what is needed to cooperate with therm, I will try to help.
For the Amur leopard it would be very helpful if a person from your “leopard group” would be able to find out if there are buyers of dried sika deer antler velvet in Korea, and what the price of this velvet is.
It is great news that you have already raised $2,000! However, I am not sure if it is possible to spend the funds on anti-poaching with a dog. The work of the dog that we already have, is already financed. And I am not completely sure if we will buy a second dog. That depends on if other AP teams also want to work with a dog. So far I have not found another team that wants to work with a dog! Sio in any case a second dog will not be bought soon.
But I hope you agree to spend your money on another project. One possibility is to spend it on the main anti-poaching team. Another possibility is fire-fighting. We have a fire-fighting team. They now work in a priority area of about 100 square kilometres. They have reduced fires by 65% in the priority area. We will now built firebreaks, which will reduce the fires even more. And then we will plant trees in parts of the priority area where they have disappeared (only grass remains in some parts). Would it be possible to spend your money on building a system of firebreaks?
You can find a report about the fire problem on my website www.tigrisfoundation.nl (go to reports).

Subject: Greetings from Yujin
I hope you are very well. Thanks for the information that you sent to me. We made a proposal about ‘forest products trade with Russia’ to ‘Beautiful Trade’. ‘Beautiful trade’ is an NGO who promotes ‘alternative trade’. They liked our suggestion.
But I think it will take more time and effort to do this job. I will be in touch…
The group who gathered to protect Leopard has around $2,000 and we decided how to spend this money. We would like to support Tigris Foundation’s illegal hunting monitoring program. Can we buy a dog and hire a person who can care and walk the dog…. I know we need around $8,000 and we promise to keep fundraising. If we persuade people how we are going to use this money then they will more actively participate. Do you think this is possible? Yung jun, Kim will contact you to explain to you how to send money.
