Tiger train in Moscow Metro

On September 27, a joint project of the Russian Geographical Society, the Amur Tiger Center and the Amur Leopards autonomous non-profit organization jointly with the Moscow metro will be held.  Under the Striped Express project, the composition of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line of the Moscow subway was decorated with images of red books and landscapes of the unique nature of the Far East of the Russian Federation.

The thematic train, decorated from the inside with three-dimensional pictures of the flora and fauna of the Far East, begins to run in the Moscow metro on the day when the main ecological holiday of Primorye, the Tiger Day, is celebrated in Vladivostok.

Designed specifically for the “Striped Express” 3D-images allow you to fully immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the wild Far Eastern taiga in all its diversity - each of the cars of the new train is decorated individually and represents a specific time of year.

Throughout the day, volunteers of the Moscow Zoo will be on duty at the metro ring stations. They will tell subway visitors about the projects and programs of the Amur Tiger Center for preserving the largest feline representative and the Tiger's Day celebrated September 27 in Vladivostok.

The Striped Express project is being implemented with the aim of popularizing the images of rare representatives of the feline family and forming a careful attitude to these animals and their environment.
