As of now, the number of tigers in Northeast Siberian Tiger Park in Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang Province in Northeast China, has exceeded 1,000. The park is the largest Siberian Tiger Feeding base in the world with an annual growth of about 100 tigers.

At the same time of enlarging Siberian Tiger’s group, scientific researchers have been optimizing the group of Siberian Tiger through DNA test, feral training and blood test to let the artificial feeding tigers return to nature finally.

The Siberian Tiger is mainly living in China’s Northeast and Russia’s Siberia regions, and it is one of the top ten endangered animals in the world.

China built the world’s largest artificial feeding base for Siberian Tiger in Heilongjiang province in 1986, and there were only eight Siberian tigers. After so many years of cultivation, the number of the tiger in the base has exceeded 1,000.
