Environmental Project By Transaero
July 4, 2015 16:14


The official presentation of the joint project of the “Amur Tiger” Centre and “Transaero” was held at the Moscow Vnukovo Airport. Its goal is to draw attention of the international and Russian public to the issues of environmental protection and conservation of rare and endangered species.

Under the project called “The Striped Travel”, the wide-body long-haul aircraft of “Transaero” Boeing 747-400, accommodating 447 passengers, acquired the characteristic features of a tiger. In accordance with the idea that was created and implemented by the “Transaero” airline company, the nose of the aircraft was decorated by an image of the head of an Amur tiger having no analogues in the world civil aviation.

The tiger’s color will be later added to some details of the interior of the passenger cabin. The procedure of painting of the plane have been held under the financial support of COALCO. The fact that the symbol of the project is the Amur tiger is quite natural. It is the largest cat on the Earth and one of the rarest representatives of the cat family.

According to the survey conducted in 2015, the population of Amur tiger in the wild Russian nature has stabilized at around 510-540 animals, moreover, it began to gradually grow. It was possible to stop the decline of the population and even increase it due to the successive solution of the tasks set by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin at the Tiger Summit in 2010.

An important part was also played by the improvement of the legal regulatory framework, the strengthening of the responsibility for hunting the animals listed in the Red Book, the intensification of law enforcement agencies and the active information work. In the coming decade the fate of Amur tigers and the whole natural complex will largely depend on the coordinated actions of the international community. That is why the joint project of the “Amur Tiger” Centre and “Transaero” will be held under the motto “Save the nature together”.
