A team of scientists from Russia and South Korea are teaming up to find a way to save a rare species of tiger.

The amur tiger, which lives mainly in Russia’s far-east, is one of the most endangered species in Asia, with fewer than 70 living in the wild.

Now, South Korean scientists have joined their Russian colleagues to start a program to help the tiger breed in the wild.

Also known as the Siberian, Korean, Manchurian, or North China tiger, the amur tiger is one of the largest and most powerful big cats in the world.

The South Korean scientists say their ultimate goal is to repopulate the tigers, then bring several back to South Korea to reinforce its population.
