Help Tiger Rehabilitation Center in Russia

by Phoenix Fund Vetted since 2010 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit


Every year tiger cubs lose their mothers and become orphans. Also, tigers with injuries or affected by some diseases are found near human settlements. Such animals are doomed to death in severe conditions of taiga. A special rehabilitation center was built in Primorye to ensure cub's survival and successful release back into the wild.

There are only 450-500 Amur tigers left in the wild. Orphaned or sick they are lucky to fall into good hands of Inspection Tiger which makes best efforts for their rescue. Fortunately, with the recent creation of proper rehabilitation center for rare animals, the fostered, fattened and healthy tigers are most likely to get back to the wild nature. We desperately need funding to take care of the orphaned tigers that get to the center.


The facility is the first full-fledged rehabilitation center for tigers and other animals in Russia. The wood lot located far from human settlements is the most suitable site for semi-free-ranging animals where "patients" are not disturbed by visitors. The specialists will nurse the cubs, teach them to hunt and fear humans to make the release possible and safe for both the animal and the people living in its habitat.

Long-Term Impact

The population of the Amur tiger, living exclusively in the south of the Russian Far East, has low numbers and very low genetic variety. Preservation of each healthy reproductive individual, capable of living in the nature independently, is very important for reducing tiger-human conflicts and Amur tiger conservation as a whole.
