Siberian Tiger Conservation

Scientists and photographers Maurice Hornocker and Howard Quigley, drafted a landmark conservation plan to save endangered Siberian tigers such as Koucher and Niurka, the captive cats pictured here in Gayvoron, Russia. By means of instruments such as GPS, cameras, biotelemetry, and transceivers, scientists can remotely monitor threatened species in order to better understand their migratory and hunting habits and protect their habitats.
