VLADIVOSTOK, December 14. /TASS/. Experts from the Natural Resources Ministry will help North Korea estimate the tiger population living there, a wildlife official in Russia's Far East said on Monday.
"We know for sure that Siberian tigers live in Russia and China. They can also be found in North Korea," Sergey Aramilev said. " The ministry is holding talks with North Korean colleagues on estimating the Siberian tiger population in that country."
Yuri Darman, head of the Worldwide Fund for Nature's Far Eastern department, said North Korea had all conditions necessary for Siberian tigers. "A female tiger with two cubs recently crossed from Russia to North Korea," he said.
Russian environmentalists are working with Chinese colleagues seeking to preserve the tiger population. They plan to count numbers living in China during 2016.
Some 540 tigers currently live in Russia’s Far East.
