Siberian tigers successfully breeding in Chinese national park

The China National Park for Siberian Tigers in northeast Heilongjiang Province has seen its wild tiger population jump since 2017 with 10 wild cubs being bred by the original 27 animals.
The park shoulders Russia and North Korea, creating a natural corridor for the tigers to move. Infrared cameras and regular warden patrols seek to study and protect this valuable species.
Since protection efforts were stepped up, black bear, wild boar, roe dear and other animal populations have also increased.
