Human activities still a concern for wild Siberian tiger protection
Wildlife experts said enhanced protection measures gave hope to the protection of wild Siberian tigers in China-Russia border region, but human activities still disturb their free movement and habitation, a key to the survival of the highly endangered species, Xinhua reported on November 4.
The Siberian tiger is a subspecies of tiger which once roamed in Russian Far East, eastern part of northeast China and northern part of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Due to fragmentation of forests and poaching, only about 20 Siberian tigers are believed to live in wild in Jilin and Heilongjiang, while the population of wild tigers in neighboring Russia is estimated between 430 and 500.
