Like the Bengal tiger, the Siberian tiger is designated as endangered by the IUCN. Because their numbers are so limited, Siberian tigers have a remarkably low genetic diversity. Similarly, continued habit fragmentation has separated the population that lives in mountainous regions with those that live in woodland regions. While Siberian tigers currently have low global population numbers, there are thankfully a multitude of regulations and sanctuaries in place to help maintain and boost their numbers.

Siberian tigers are listed as endangered due to illegal logging, which results in habitat destruction, and poaching for tiger parts used in Chinese medicine. Recent estimates indicate that there are around 360 Siberian tigers left in the wild. Conservation efforts include monitoring populations, protecting their habitats, and enforcing antipoaching and logging legislation.
