About Ten Wild Tigers Found Living in NE Province

HARBIN, August 20 -- After years of tracking and investigation, zoologists in Heilongjiang Province have concluded that eight to 12 wild tigers are living in this northeast China province.

This figure is three to five more than the founding of scientists from China, the United States and Russia who carried out a joint expedition on wild tigers in 1999, local officials said Monday.

The latest research shows that wild tigers mainly live in three regions in Heilongjiang, a province neighboring Russia. An official from the provincial forestry bureau said the province has set up three trans-national protection zones of tigers. The neighboring Jilin Province has also established protection zones at the border area. These protection zones will guarantee the free move of tigers between China and Russia.

Departments concerned are considering setting up a large-scale ecological protection zone by connecting these tiger protection zones to help maintain ecological balance for wild tigers, the official said.
