Great Notice: chinese tiger founded!

It was photographed on October 3, a young wild South China tiger. One of the world's 10 most endangered animals.

The last wild South China tiger sighting was in 1964. Nobody has seen a wild animal for more than 20 years. There are about 68 of them in zoos and, experts thought, about 20-30 in the wild. There were 4000 tigers in 1950-th, but Mao Zedung did not love them and ...

This tiger (
Panthera tigris amoyensis) is one of the world's smallest (2.5 m long from head to tail, 150 kg) and the only chinese native tiger.

WWF says, they are functionally extinct because there is neither habitat no pray left.

That is why this notice is really great! Maybe now Chinese government will do something for them as they did for pandas.
