Supporting the global goal to #doubletigers by 2022!
The Saiga antelope is often poked fun at for its unusual look and big nose. This didn’t help to improve its status as a critically endangered animal. In a twist of fate, by planning to reintroduce its predator – the Tiger, the country of Kazakhstan is protecting these forgotten prey species too by restoring the landscape they all belong to.

2017 Highlights: Kazakhstan announced plans to reintroduce tigers to their country. If successful, it will be the first time tigers are brought across national borders.
