World Wildlife Fund has recently announced an intention to establish national reserve park “Zov Tigra” (Roar of the Tiger), aimed at conservation of Amur tiger population, in Russia.
The reserve’s territory will cover 200 thousand acres and host routs for nature tourists, as well as protecting tiger’s habitat. Darron Collins, manager of Amur-Heilong WWF programme in the US, says establishing a reserve park would be essential for surviving of the biggest cat in the world. Taking the decision about making a reserve zone for few Amur tugers left required ten years.
Russia’s Far East appears to have several closely guarded areas near China’s border, where any human activity is prohibited – thus, some wilderness will go to tigers’ disposal.
