Panthera tigris altaica
1940's- Over Hunting
The vast tracts of tiger forests in the Amur-Heilong landscape are unique. This region is comprised of Korean pine and Mongolian oak, which provide an important habitat for Amur tiger and its prey as well as important economic resources for local communities.
Amur tigers have the largest home range of any tiger subspecies because low prey densities means they have to search over large areas to find food. They represent the largest unfragmented tiger population in the world.
Range map and current status
There are around 450 Amur Tigers now, which was vastly improved from just 40 Amur Tigers.
