"Amur tiger" will support Spring and Referendum in Yalta

The Russian non-profit organization Amur Tiger in Primorye took financial care of two tiger cubs - Referendum and Vesna, who were born in March at the Yalta Zoo Skazka in Crimea. This decision was made by the organization in connection with the financial difficulties of the Yalta Zoo.

Experts of the international program will check how thoroughbred tiger cubs are, whether there is no closely related crossbreeding. Then the predators will be able to participate in the program of crossing from different zoos of the world and get offspring, which will be a reserve for the wild population in case of its reduction. Only purebred tigers will be able to support the wild population, since the placement of closely related offspring in the wild can upset the balance of the ecosystem.

According to the Amur Tiger organization, it is important to intensify work on the development of cooperation between the safari-park “Taigan” (one of the parks of the Yalta Zoo “Fairy Tale”) and the Eurasian Regional Association of Zoos and Aquariums (Yevraza), whose leader is the Moscow Zoo, so that the Crimean park could become a member of the international program for the conservation of the Amur tiger in captivity and contribute to the preservation of this subspecies.

Amur tiger is listed in the International Red Book. To date, the population of Amur tigers in the wild has declined and is about 450 individuals. This rare predator lives only in the taiga of the Primorsky and Khabarovsk Territories.
