Oasis of Siberian tiger
A unique Slovak project for the protection of the Ussurian Tiger. The beginning of this project – the building of enclosures dates back to 1999. Many volunteers from the public and students have helped with the development. The mainstay of the operation is Iveta Iršova whose love, devotion, kindness, patience and perseverance makes this ‘oasis’ possible. The ‘Oasis’ is not far from Senec in a protected area of the countryside. It is about 3 km from the village of Kostolná pri Dunaji. Under the protection of our ‘Citizens Association’ we have 22 beautiful, healthy striped ussurian tigers (Panthera tigris attaica ); all bred in captivity and commonly called ‘Siberian Tigers’. They are a protected species in CITES Category 1. All our tigers are micro chipped and DNA tested.
