Amur tiger, Is listed in the International Red Book in Russia lives in the Primorsky and Khabarovsk Territories. Hunting for Amur tigers is prohibited. WWF, other international and national environmental organizations are funding programs to save these rare animals.

The player with them is on the field playing all the stages of maturation cub: learning to gather food, to communicate with their own kind and other animals survive the winter, she learned how to deal with people. In the form of a game children learn about how and what he lives a tiger in the Ussuri taiga ", - said the agency interlocutor.

In Russia at the moment inhabits the largest population of tigers in the same areal (More than 450 tigers, or about 11% of world population). This was possible thanks to taken in the 1950 - 1980 of measures, including a complete ban on the production and trapping of tigers, a network of specially protected natural territories and research.

I was a wee bit hasty yesterday towards the WWF. If they are supporting the protection of tigers with this 'tiger trail' programme, then good luck to them. I visited the site to view that video (without hitting translate as you have already done so). Saving these fine big cats is an essential duty that we as humains owe to these tigers! Noté, Thank you Cher for translating this too!
