Monitoring of the Amur tiger has begun in Primorsky Krai. Employees of the National Reserve “Call of the Tiger” study the tracks in the snow.
The press service of the reserve told Vostokmedia that they monitor the Red Book cat every year, in February, in particular, in the southern part of the reserve. At the same time, it is not easy to count traces because of the relief of the national park – mountains with steep slopes. Specialists have to move on snowmobiles and skis.
Each track encountered is recorded in the diary of the observer, marked on the map. In addition, the specialist makes five measurements of the tracks, determining the sex and age of the tiger. This time, the staff of the reserve will mark the tracks not only of tigers, but also of ungulates. They will place camera traps along all routes.
IA PrimaMedia reports that the camera trap of the National Park “Land of the Leopard” in the Primorsky Territory for the first time recorded the maternal zone of a tigress. Scientists have received rare footage of the rest of the family of Amur tigers. Mom-tigress, returning from hunting, did not find her two cubs in place and began to call them loudly. The camera trap witnessed the reunion of the Red Book family.
The press service of the Land of the Leopard Federal State Budgetary Institution explained to the agency that the acoustic repertoire of tigers in the Far East has been little studied. It is a great success for specialists to get information about the variety of sounds that tigers and leopards use in social.
It is already known that the female called T64F called the cubs. She first spotted a tiger cub with her T19F mom in 2018. In a recent video – her first brood.
Earlier, on February 2, it was reported that in the Khabarovsk Territory, a tiger attacked a herd of horses near the villages of Arsenyevo and Uni in the Nanai district. He dragged two horses into the taiga.
