First Glimpse of Adorable Newborn Tiger Triplets at Crimean Safari Park

Description

This trio of adorable newborn tiger cub triplets were filmed for the first time on Tuesday after being born at the Taigan Safari Park in Crimea. The Amur tiger cubs are mother Frosi’s first offspring, and she kept a protective eye on them as visitors were allowed to see them for the first time. According to her keeper, Frosi won’t even let the cubs’ father Felix come near them yet, and is feeding them herself – which is unusual for animals kept in captivity. Over the next two weeks, the cubs will begin to open their eyes and will start to get comfortable with seeing members of the public. Amur tigers were once found throughout the Russian Far East, northern China and the Korean peninsula, but were driven to the brink of extinction by hunting. Russia became the first country in the world to grant the tiger full protection. There were only about 400 Amur tigers in the wild when a census was taken in 2005, and researchers found that the population was declining. However, after a decade of intense conservation efforts, there are now over 550 adult Amur tigers in the wild and the numbers appear to be growing. The Amur tiger has been pushed back from the brink of extinction, for now, but careful conservation efforts must continue to protect this majestic species.

  • Newborn Amur Tiger Triplets Give Hope to Most Endangered Tiger Species

    Three newly-born Amur tiger cub triplets were seen playing with their parents at their new home in Belogorsk’s Taigan Safari Park on Monday, after the sanctuary welcomed the cuddly cats into this world last week. The newborn triplets represent a major boost to the population as there are only about 500 Amur tigers left in the wild, mostly in Russia's Far East provinces. Amur tigers were once found throughout the Russian Far East, northern China and the Korean peninsula, but were driven to the brink of extinction by the 1940s as a result of hunting. However, Russia granted the tiger full protection soon afterwards and numbers have risen.
