Meeting with nature: A tiger’s tale
The Siberian tiger is called “the soul of the taiga” by the hunters and shamans of the Primorskiy region. For them it’s a sacred animal which is the incarnation of their ancestors’ spirits. Tigers have been inhabiting the deep forests of Primorskiy region for centuries and managed to avoid the hunter’s gun. But the constant encroachment of civilisation upon the taiga puts these exquisite creatures in danger of total extinction. Siberian tigers, their survival and people who are trying to protect tigers from dying out are the focus of the next installment of the Meeting with Nature series.
