Wild tigers are to be reintroduced to Kazakhstan
In Kazakhstan, Ili-Balkhash tiger reserve was established to reintroduce tiger prey species and protect tigers.
According to the decision of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Balkhash reserve, which occupies more than 415 thousand hectares, is the sixth reserve in the country.
There are only about 3.9 thousand tigers in the world.
Reintroduction is the process of reintegration of a species of wild animal, bird, or plant which are at the brink of extinction for some reasons, to create a new and self-sustaining population in areas where the organism is capable of survival.
