Bringing tigers back home to Kazakhstan

The reintroduction is a groundbreaking plan to return these majestic felines to their ancestral home, where they can roam freely and safely. If successful, Kazakhstan will be the first country in the world to bring wild tigers back to Central Asia where they have been extinct for nearly half a century. So far, tiger relocation projects have only been achieved within national borders and in areas that are already considered current tiger habitats. Kazakhstan’s program will require the restoration of an immense riparian forest that is part of the wild tiger’s historical range. The government of Kazakhstan will designate a new nature reserve in southwestern Ili-Balkhash, which will restore the riparian forest habitat bordering Lake Balkhash. This reserve will protect existing wildlife, reintroduce tiger prey species, and safeguard this vital ecosystem.
