Meet Our Amur Tigers
How you can help
The Calgary Zoo—along with other accredited zoos across North America—participates in Species Survival Plans (SSP). Your donations and membership costs can go a long way in helping us fund these conservation efforts.
Where We Live
Amur tigers were once known as Siberian tigers, since they were found throughout much of Siberia. Today their territory has shrunk to a small area in northeastern Russia, called the Amur Valley. Their habitats are in the vast woodlands of northern birch forests.
Did You Know?
Tigers are great swimmers and can even swim across lakes and rivers.
