Forest team heads out in search of wild tigers
Adjust font size:

A team of 20 State Forest Bureau officials trekked into the mountains of the Tongbiguan Natural Reserve in Yunnan province to search for Indo-Chinese tigers last Saturday.

The endangered species had not been seen in the area for more than a decade, but then on May 2007, a team from Beijing Normal University took a photo of one of the tigers. The investigative team decided to visit the area to search for the big cats.

There are believed to be 1,227 to 1,785 Indo-Chinese tigers living in the wild. They are native to South China, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Malaysia.
