Siberian tigers filmed in the wild

It's a sad fact, but there's less than 500 Siberian Tigers left in the wild.

Poaching and the destruction of their natural habitat has left them highly endangered.

This footage has just been taken for a special BBC programme, Operation Snow Tiger, which hits your TV tonight!
