Within the framework of the federal project "Conservation of biological diversity and development of ecological tourism", which is part of the national project "Ecology", special attention is paid to the restoration of the Siberian tiger population.

Among the activities planned within the framework of the federal project are conducting a complete census of tigers, updating the Strategy for the Conservation of the Siberian tiger in the Russian Federation, and purchasing technical means to strengthen the protection of protected areas within the species' range.

Work is underway to create a unified database on the state of the Amur tiger population in Russia, including the entire amount of information on the current distribution, abundance, biology and ecology of the species.

The confident growth of the Amur tiger population confirms Russia's readiness to fulfill the commitments undertaken within the framework of the Global Tiger Recovery Program to increase the number to 600 individuals (500 of which are adults).

Achieving these targets is especially important as Russia will host the Second International Forum on Tiger Conservation in 2022.

Russia is the only country in which the northernmost subspecies of the tiger, the Amur tiger, is found. Its habitat is limited to the Primorsky Territory, the Khabarovsk Territory, the Amur Region and the Jewish Autonomous Region.

Today, 39 specially protected natural areas (including 16 of federal significance) function in the tiger's range, the total area of ​​which is 4.7 million hectares, or 25% of the total area of ​​the modern range of this species.
