Rosneft also supports centres for the rehabilitation and reintroduction of the Amur tiger, feeding and veterinary support of animals, and provides special equipment for training tigers released into the wild to hunt independently and to co-exist with humans without conflict.

Currently the Company is funding the construction of enclosures for Amur tiger in Silinsky Park in the city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur. It’s going to be placed next to the enclosures for the Amur leopard.
