The first week of December 2012 marked the busiest days at the Amur Tiger Rehabilitation Centre located in Alekseevka village (Primorsky krai, Russian Far East). The centre has admitted new patients – three Amur tiger cubs –that were found in the woods without their mother in late November. The Phoenix Fund and Inspection Tiger are addressing to the community and asking for donations to help feed the young predators and prepare them for release back in taiga.
Despite the fact that the rescue operation was a success, there are few reasons for joy. The specialists are unanimous in their supposition regarding a tiger mother. The tigress must have been poached or left her cubs because of lack of prey. And now, specialists of Inspection Tiger and A.N. Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution, Russian Academy of Sciences as well as non-governmental organisations are responsible for nursing the animals and preparing them for release into the wild. The Phoenix Fund and International Fund for Animal Welfare, who are already involved in raising funds for young tigress Cinderella, have offered their help and launched a fundraising campaign to support the orphans.
Help us support these tiger cubs! Your help would give them a better chance of returning to the taiga. It is hoped that the three cubs will be released back into the wild to play a vital role in the future survival of these magnificent big cats.
PLEASE DONATE NOW! Whatever you can give would be gratefully received. Thank you. You can donate via Wildlife Alliance, our American partner, or through Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance.
