In 1995, the Siberian tiger was included in the Red List of Threatened Species, and measures are being taken at the legislative level to preserve the species. By 2007, the population had peaked over the past hundred years. 2008 saw the launch of a program to study the Siberian tiger in the Far East using modern methods, including satellite collars, camera traps, etc. Since 2013, the Amur Tiger Center, founded at the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has been trying to conserve the species and increase the Siberian tiger population.
Such long-term and well-organized work to save the species has come to fruition.
