Two Tiger Cubs Born at Zov Tigra National Park
In late 2013, two tiger cubs were born at Zov Tigra National Park.
The park’s staff learnt the news in early 2014 when they found traces of the babies during a route examination. In all, there are 10 tigers at the national park now.
Director of the Primorye Territory Department of Natural Resources and Environment Alexei Pochekunin said the animals’ population had increased due to the work done at the park.
“We must focus on the results, not on the paperwork,” he noted. “The number of tigers is growing, which every Primorye Territory resident can take pride in.”
Zov Tigra National Park lies in the southeast of the Primorye Territory. It spans the Chuguyevsky, Olginsky and Lazovsky districts. The national park stretches 42 km from north to south and 39 km from west to east.
