Russia’s Amur Tiger population crashing (again)

After rebounding around the turn of the century (and hailed as a “conservation success story”), the population of Amur Tigers in Russia has crashed about 41 percent over the last seven years. (NY Times) “For Russia this is particularly grievous,” said Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who considers these massive, beautiful creatures the country’s “calling card.” Amurs are the biggest tiger subspecies, growing up to 10 feet long, 650 pounds. What’s killing them off? The usual suspects. Logging, development and poachers.

It’s looking pretty grim for tigers around the world. Experts estimate there are just a few thousand left.

Pound360 Archive

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
