China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

China is con­sid­er­ing a plan to ex­pand a ma­jor Siberian tiger re­serve in the north­east and re­lo­cate half of the 6,000 lo­cal res­i­dents in or­der to bet­ter pro­tect the rare species, an of­fi­cial said on Thurs­day. The Hunchun Na­tional Siberian Tiger Na­ture Re­serve will be in­creased by 524 hectares if the plan is adopted by the State Coun­cil, said Lang Jian­min, di­rec­tor of the re­serve’s sci­en­tific re­search and pub­lic­ity cen­ter. The State Forestry Ad­min­is­tra­tion has al­ready ap­proved the plan.
