Amur Tiger, Print
LIMITED EDITION PRINT of 20
This painting is part of my series 'Not So Hopeless' which aims to counterbalance the dominance of negative news about endangered animals by refreshing the public with success stories from all around the world.
This work was inspired by the following successful actions to save the Amur tiger from extinction in Russia:
In the 1940s, there were only 40 Amur tigers left due to poaching. Russia became the first country to put full protection on the tiger. Their population raised to 500 by the 1980s and has been stable since, even in spite of increased poaching(1).This is thanks to work done by the WWF, WSC, along with many others.
"The vast tracts of tiger forests in the Amur-Heilong landscape are unique....which provide an important habitat for the Amur tiger and its prey—as well as important economic resources for local communities" (2). Conservations efforts are still in need as illegal deforestation and poaching are still threatening the Amur Tiger.
