Siberian Tiger Population Doubled in One Year
Siberian Tiger Population Doubled in One Year. It goes unexpectedly well with the Siberian tiger.
During the annual count in Russia, twice as many copies were counted as in 2017. Besides, more cubs were counted than expected.
Siberian tiger spotting is a rarity. The enormous feline is threatened with extinction, and worldwide the population is estimated at a meagre 430 tigers.
In the Bikin National Park, where the Siberian tiger is heavily protected, in 2017 only ten specimens were counted. This year there was positive news, and the counter ran up to no less than twenty adult tigers and six cubs.
One female had no less than four youngsters. “This is rare and proof that the Tigers feel safe and at ease in the park,” said Vladimir Popov, head of scientific research at the park against the WWF.
