Wild Tigers

With 2010 being the Year of the Tiger, the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) is focusing on the Tiger. There are estimated to be fewer than 3,200 tigers left in the wild. The WWF is trying to raise awareness and double the number of wild tigers by 2022, the next year of the tiger. Click here to read more about the WWF effort.

Harbin's second most famous attraction, after the Snow and Ice World, is probably the Siberian Tiger Park. The Tiger Park is home to numerous Siberian tigers, but they are all in captivity. We haven't yet visited the park, but are planning to when our guests arrive in mid-March. I bet it's amazing to see the tigers, even in cages, and could only imagine how they'd look in the wild.

I hope I don't find that out, I'd hate to meet a tiger in the wild!
