Thank You Camera Traps

November 24, 2015

Today, we shared this camera trap footage of rarely seen Amur tigers in Russia's Sikhote-Alin Biosphere Reserve. The clip shows a female and three cubs walking an overgrown forest road.

We've been working in this area with Russian collaborators to close old logging roads to protect Amur tigers and their prey from poachers, who use the roads to access the habitat. This footage is a sign that these efforts may be working.
