Amur Tiger

Amur tigers and people must find a way to co-exist in the RFE. GPS collar technology enables researchers to gain insights into predator-prey dynamics and help resolve some of these conflicts in a scientific manner. Our research intends to apply this technology to assess kill rates on ungulate species throughout the year, contributing to conservation of one of the world’s most threatened and iconic species.
