A number of hunting clubs in the region have already begun to help animals: they cut trails, set feeding sites and take measures to combat poaching.
“This year is challenging. The snow cover in northern districts reached almost one meter, this is extremely dangerous for the survival of ungulates and tigers. We expect an increase in conflict tigers by the spring. Thanks to WWF, the infrastructure of the Rehab Center ‘TIGR” is ready for this situation. We are finishing the construction of a warm surgery block with water supply.” comments Viktor Kuzmenko, head of the Rehab Center “TIGR”.

WWF has already supported the anti-poaching work of Khabarovsky, Evreiskaya and Amurskaya wildlife management departments, as well as the work of conflict tiger resolution groups. Supplementary feeding for ungulates has already begun in Irbis and Tayozhnoye hunting clubs. Additional forage and fuel will be provided for the northern territories in need. We have to make all efforts to save animals from death.
