Three Cubs Joined Cinderella


This page is devoted to tiger cubs that are kept at Primorskii Regional Non-commercial Organization «The Centre for Rehabilitation and Reintroduction of Tigers and Other Rare Animals» (PRNCO «Tiger Centre») located in Alekseevka village (Primorsky krai, Russian Far East). The first patient – young tigress called Cinderella – appeared at the centre in early 2013. Since then the animal has been successfully rehabilitated and released back into the wild. It became possible thanks not only to a great team of high skilled professionals, but also to financial support from non-governmental organisations and concerned people. The Phoenix Fund and Inspection Tiger are addressing to the community and asking to continue making donations to help feed the young predators and prepare them for release back in taiga.

Specialists of Inspection Tiger and A.N. Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution, Russian Academy of Sciences as well as non-governmental organisations are responsible for nursing the animals and preparing them for release into the wild. The Phoenix Fund and International Fund for Animal Welfare, who supported rehabilitation of young tigress Cinderella, have offered their help and launched a fundraising campaign to support the orphans.

Now, three tigers are being prepared for return into the wild after successful rehabilitation at the centre. The release is scheduled for late May in Amurskaya Oblast. We would like to thank everyone who are concerned about the fate of the centre’s patients and go on making donations.
