It’s a summit on a par with the Group of Eight, except that it’s about tigers. Officials from Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Russia, Thailand and Vietnam—which have the largest remaining tiger populations— are meeting in Bali to create a road map for tiger conservation, as a prelude to a heads of government summit in Russia in September.

It isn’t a moment too soon—the global population of wild tigers is a paltry 3,200. Hopefully, other endangered species will get similar attention.
