For reference:

Since 2022, FSUE “Rosmorport” has been providing assistance to the Amur Tiger Center in the implementation of projects on studying and preservation of the rare predator population. In 2023, the company helped to purchase an all-terrain vehicle “Vepr V5” for the Protection, Control and Regulation of the Wildlife Objects Usage Department of Primorsky Region and deliver it to Ussuriysk.

The Amur tiger is one of the rarest subspecies of the tiger, the largest on the planet and the only one adapted to life in harsh winter conditions. It is included in the Red Book of the Russian Federation and the International Red Book. Only about 600 individuals of these predators live in the wild nature of Russia.
