Recently I watched Nat Geo Wild TV channel about Russian secret forest named Ussuriland. The forest is very beautiful, full of pine trees and tropical trees, surrounded by mountain ranges, valleys, and rivers.
What amazed me even more is the animals that live in it are very diverse. In Ussuriland forest, there live the huge and hairy Amur (Siberian) tigers.
Amur tiger is the largest among all tigers in the world. It has robust body and sturdy front and rear arms, thus making it look elegant and frightening to its enemies.
Ussuriland is home to Amur tigers and other animals such as the Asian black bear, raccoon dogs, and Amur leopards. They live together in the forest in their own area without disturbing each other.
It’s just that unfortunately, peace in the forest increasingly disturbed by humans. More Amur tigers are hunted by humans for their skins or used as ingredients in traditional Chinese medicine. In addition, their habitat is increasingly reduced by logging. Those beautiful tigers are are marginalized and living in the end times.
Human beings as creatures with brains and conscious should seriously take responsibility to care for the Ussuriland forest. It’s in their hands lies the hope of nature conservation, including the survival of the Amur tigers and other animals in Ussuriland.
With more people know the beauty of nature, floras, and faunas in the forest, it is expected that more and more people become concerned about the preservation of the nature.
