Scientists at the Ussuriysky Reserve received footage of a pair of Amur tigers “going out.” They give hope for the birth of offspring and population growth in the territory where four or five striped predators traditionally live. This was announced by Ivan Rakov, chief public relations specialist of the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Land of the Leopard”, which manages the Ussuri Nature Reserve.
