ALEXEYEVKA VILLAGE, Primorsky Ter, September 1 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the centre for rehabilitation and reintroduction of tigers and other endangered species.
In his presence, two tigresses brought from the Khabarovsk Territory came into an enclosure where they will recover.
After the young tigresses, nine and eleven months old, were let out, the president from the operator point monitored their movement in the enclosure.
Workers at the centre said that one tigress after rehabilitation was set free in the Bastak reserve in the Jewish Autonomous Region last May. Specialists monitor the animal's location.
The president asked how much money was needed for normal functioning of the centre.
The cost of the centre, which occupies three hectares, is eleven mln rbls, and one million is needed on the average for rehabilitation of one tiger a year, specialists said.
Minister of Natural Resources Sergei Donskoi said the ministry planned to provide three-four million. Putin asked to consider the financing.
