The movement received even more recognition, after the Administration of the Vladivostok has given the status of the official celebration to the event.
In 2010, relying on the experience of Vladivostok in attracting attention to the problems of the preservation of the wild cats; the international forum "The Tiger Summit" has been held in St. Petersburg on the main topic focused on preservation of the tiger's population. During the Forum, 13 countries have given the international status to the "Day of the Tiger" and announced the date of its celebration.
The Day of the Tiger is celebrated annually in Vladivostok on every 4th Sunday of September. The aim of the celebration is to attract the attention of the population to the extinction of the rare species of the Amur Tiger. Following the example of Vladivostok, other Russian citizens and some cities in Europe have joined the celebration of this day.
