Amur Tigers (Panthera tigris altaica)

These two sisters arrived at Port Lympne Reserve from Berlin in 2018.  Amba has a fairly calm personality, unlike Amura who is definitely the boss of the two - especially at feed time! They can usually be found on top of their shelter or patrolling their territory.

    Fun Facts about Amur Tigers

    The Amur tiger, also known as the Siberian tiger, is the largest of the big cats. In the 1940s, they were on the brink of extinction with fewer than 50 wild individuals left. In 1947 the Russian government banned tiger hunting and the wild population began to slowly recover. Today, there are roughly 500 wild individuals living in Russia, China and possibly North Korea. North-East Asia’s Amur (Heilong) river basin is home to many Amur Tigers with its wealth of biodiversity has some of the world’s most intact and extensive temperate forests.

    Amur tigers were historically thought to be solitary animals. It is now known that males stay with females and cubs, presumably for protection for long periods of time.

    Most of the remaining wild amur tigers can be found in the northern forests of Russia as these forests have the lowest human density of any other habitat in the world for tigers. The eastern birch forests also give tigers more room to roam and provides a complete ecosystem for them to thrive.
