This map presents the history of the Amur tiger in the Russian Far East and its relationship with people. Each bookmark tells of a certain period of time, and each icon contains a story, fascinating facts, photos or video. By clicking and reading bookmarks, you can see how the Amur tiger turned from the lord of the taiga into an outsider, and how after that humans had to rescue it and restore its numbers. And this process is far from completed.
You can leave your track in the tiger chronicles as well. Send us your stories, photos or videos of your “acquaintance” with a tiger on this e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. And do not forget to mention where the “meeting” took place. Your “track” will certainly appear on the map!

Peter Amurovich is a modern urban tiger, and nothing human is alien to him. He even makes selfies with great pleasure. Like all tigers, he is a true patriot of his homeland. Peter Amurovich does everything he can for the environment, and tells all of his new friends about wildlife.
Peter Amurovich was one of the first tigers to take part in the “Tiger census”, and now he helps census workers to establish contacts between humans and tigers in real life and in social networks too. Peter has good disposition and an outgoing personality. He can only lose his temper because of the people who misbehave in the forest or when his tigerphone discharges out of the blue.
Arseniy is still quite a young tiger, little more than a tiger cub. Maybe that's why he easily finds common language with children. Arseniy is a distant relative of Peter Amurovich, but prefers to live in the taiga, where he feels at ease.
More than anything else, Arseny enjoys learning new things. So he explores his native taiga all day long and in the evening talks to his best friend — Polycarp the Cedar.
Polycarp the Cedar is a tree in his prime. He had picked up enough forest wisdom to share it with the animals, birds and people, but still did not lose the cheerfulness and curiosity. Cedar's mind is as sharp as his needles. And there is a good reason this cedar had got his name — he is truly «full of fruits» (as the name Polycarp translates from Greek) — each of Polycarp’s branches has a good dozen of cones. The cedar has already grown up to ten feet high, but it didn’t make him swell with importance. Polycarp is always glad to see the visitors who come from the other side of the forest to listen to his amusing stories. Polycarp himself is a huge homebody, so he communicates with the city dwellers not in person, but through the social networks.
Not so long time ago, far away in the Ussuri taiga (and, for many people, not so far away) there lived a tiger called Arseniy, young, high-spirited and curious. He began his individual life quite recently and therefore tried to find out about the world around him as much as possible. Arseniy explored his native forest tirelessly, from the smallest springs that flow into the river to the sleeping bear’s lair to see how he is doing. Then, of course, the young tiger had to run away, but it was worth it. Read the continuation
These documentaries about the Amur tiger you will not see in IMAX 3D cinemas, the world press did not shout from the housetop on their release, you will not find them brightly packed on the store shelves.
But this does not mean that such films shot in Russia by the local cameramen do not exist. They do. And you have a chance to watch the rare film on a rare animal right away right here.Enjoy Tiger Video
…A tigress and a cub tracks turned right into the depth of a snowy forest. A huge fallen Korean Pine was lying ahead. Suddenly, right in front the pine tree, a cub’s trail split into two. While climbing over the tree trunk, I’m excited with my luck. However, behind the trunk there are already three little trails on the snow! I just cannot believe it! I speed forward: exactly! Three tiger cubs! Here is one track goes up the hill, the second and the third one. They were moving side by side, next to big mother’s tracks!
… We were tracking the tiger family the whole day. By the evening we reached the edge of the volcanic plateau. At its foot, under the cliff, in the rays of a sunset, a lost world rested. Nothing but crowns covered with sparkling and glittering snow were seen. Fairy-tale-ish silence was in the air.AT FIRST HAND
