Pavel Fomenko is a man of the wilderness and tiger protector with WWF-Russia. This is his story.
In the bitter extremes of the Russian Far East, where temperatures drop well below -30C in winter months, Pavel Fomenko spends weeks out in the forest, often alone. Pavel, or Pasha to his friends, was once a hunter and knows these forests like the back of his hand. Now he uses this knowledge as WWF-Russia’s Head of Rare Species Conservation, to help protect the endangered Amur Tiger, the biggest of the big cats.
