Saving the Amur Tiger

The brown bear is the animal most commonly thought of as the national symbol of Russia. But, if you are

a resident of the Russian Far East – the Primorsky and Khabarovsky regions – Russia is Tiger Country.

The Amur Tiger, commonly called the Siberian Tiger, is one of the biggest big cats in the world. Male tigers can weigh 350 kilos and measure up to three meters long. An Amur Tiger has a range of some 500 square kilometers, and can travel a hundred kilometers in a single day.
