The charity’s overview states, “Save China's Tigers has taken on an ambitious project to reverse the fate of the South China Tiger from the border of extinction by taking them out of zoos, breeding them, let them regain their hunting abilities and reintroduce them back to China's wild. The Chinese Tiger Reintroduction Project is composed of two main subprojects: firstly the Chinese Tiger Rewilding Programme and secondly the Chinese Tiger Pilot Reintroduction Reserve in China.”
