In the 1940s the Amur tiger was on the brink of extinction, with no more than 40 tigers remaining in the wild. Thanks to vigorous antipoaching and other conservation efforts by the Russians with support from many partners, the Amur tiger population recovered and has remained stable throughout the last decade or so. But poaching of tigers and its prey, increased logging and construction of roads, forest fires and inadequate law enforcement are threats that affect the survival of the species.

    Fabulous drama here, Kim…..really well done…the lighting via your texture work is really excellent and your edge blending really adds to the impact throwing the attention back to the centre of the image…those tigers are magnificent creatures…glad their numbers are increasing…only 40 in the wild just back in the 40’s…so efforts are definitely successful….I guess they make quite a roar also…likely good there are no sound effects to your photo!

  • Yes, Kat – glad there is no sound as well!! lol Thanks for your comment on this one. I had the start of it a week or so ago, and just had the time last night to finish it… They are such large cats that I cannot imagine anyone trying to poach or hunt them…. Thanks so much for your thoughtful comment!!! Hope you enjoy your weekend!!! xx~Kim
