Siberian tigers, one of the world's rarest animal species, mainly live in east Russia, northeast China and northern part of the Korean Peninsula. Some 500 Siberian tigers currently live in the wild.

That should be something to think about. Only 500 left in the wild.

May their number exceed China's expectation....

If numbers have increased, it would be due to Russian efforts.

One of the six subspecies left, the South China Tiger, is believed to have have gone extinct, the last one shot last year, no thanks to China and its relentless pursuit of tiger parts used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

China couldn't care less about any animal.They only want to wipe out all animal species and serve for dinner.
If the numbers have increased it would be due to Russias efforts

So if their numbers have increased they can take them off the endangered list and just kill more? That's all i'm hearing from this....

So happy to hear that they are doing conservation of the forest but they should never have let things get to bad in the first place. I don't think 12 tigers is a big enough gene pool for this creature to be able to survive. but I wish them luck. The article said they found some dead, but I didn't understand if they knew how they died. We just can't loose this species or any other.

Encouraging that this is happening but more needs to be done to educate and stop tthe hunting of these beautiful animals.

Thanks Cher. It broke my heart to see 2 Siberian Tigers in the Paphos Zoo last month. How on earth they cope with the heat in Cyprus I don't know. I only went to see how they were as I'd heard Born Free were trying to get them out.

I hope and pray in every way possible that their numbers are growing as it would definitely be a tragedy to lose these incredible and beautiful animals.
