If you are doing a project, you might find the following helpful
The Siberian Tiger (or Amur Tiger) is an endangered species. Conservation programs are now in place. The Siberian (or Amur) Tiger is the world’s largest cat and it ranges from about 10 feet long and can weigh as much as 700 pounds. They live primarily in the far east of Russia with some living in China and North Korea. Recent studies have shown there are probably 400 to 500 Siberian Tigers living in the wild and they live in a northern climate where it is harsh. This is to their advantage since there are not many people living in the harsh climate which leaves an ecosystem that is very much complete. However, the Siberian Tiger is an endangered species and many conservation programs are in place to correct the measure.
Extract from http://suite101.com/ at which more detail can be found.
The total number of Siberian tigers across their entire range was estimated at 500 individuals in 2005. That count was hailed as a significant recovery for the population, since a count in the late 1940s tallied fewer than 30 animals.
Extract from Wildlife Conservation Society http://www.wcs.org/news-and-features-main/siberian-tigers-fade-away.aspx at which more detail can be found.
Also, there is the WCS Russia site – http://wcsrussia.org/Wildlife/AmurTigers/ConservationThreats/tabid/1468/language/en-US/Default.aspx . This refers to Amur Tigers, which this is another name for Siberian Tigers.
