Why They Matter
The vast tracts of tiger forests in the Amur-Heilong landscape are unique. This region comprises Korean pine and Mongolian oak, which provide an important habitat for the Amur tiger and its prey—as well as important economic resources for local communities.
Amur tigers share their home with critically endangered Amur leopards. They also live among musk deer, Himalayan bears, Siberian brown bears, wolverines and Siberian jays.
