Description

Siberian tiger or Amur tiger?

Also known as the "Siberian tiger," the Amur tiger has not been seen in Siberia for many years.

The name “Amur tiger” is indicative of the current geographical situation of the species, since today these animals are only found in the region of the Amur river, partial border between the russian far east and china. . Its presence in the korean peninsula is uncertain.

Conservation

A new Hope...

Since 2000, during the last weekend of September, around 15,000 people have been rallying for the “tiger day festival” in Vladivostok and throughout the Primorye Krai.

At the same time, at more than 9000 km, the EcoZonia Conservation Association relays, each year, this great event in Catalan country by creating a gourmet hike "Le festin des fauves". The goal is to raise awareness about saving the tiger and the Amur leopard and donate funds to the WildCats Conservation Alliance working on the ground.
