Rare Tigers Born In Siberia

The first birth of Amur tiger cubs in over a century has been reported in southeast Siberia. Scientists found traces of cubs they said were about six months old and their mother in the snow-covered taiga. The tiger cubs were first spotted in the Zeiskii Nature Reserve by a driver. The WWF said tigers found in the Amur Region may have migrated there from the neighbouring Primorye and Khabarovsk Territories in Russia's Far East, home to a population of some 450 Amur tigers.

This is great news.The magnificent Tiger should not disappear from the face of this earth.The recent efforts by Dalai Lama to put in his weight behind tiger
conservation is another laudatory event that has occurred recently.
