Conservation

Amur tigers are endangered due to habitat loss and hunting for their fur coats and body parts for use in Oriental medicine. It is thought there are currently around 250 adults in the wild. Our tigers are part of an International Breeding Programme. There have been many births here and some of those have gone on to other collections around the world.
