In this picture taken on August 25, 2017, a Siberian tiger walks past a bus transporting visitors at the Hengdaohezi Siberian Tiger Park in Hengdaohezi township on the outskirts of Mudanjiang. While Chinese rangers and conservationists work to increase the Siberian tigers' population in the wild, the country also hosts about 200 captive tiger breeding centres, but many have been embroiled in controversy. Parks like Hengdaohezi have repeatedly come under fire from conservationists who accuse them of being "tiger farms" that breed the endangered cats for profit with no intention of returning them to the wild. / AFP PHOTO / Nicolas ASFOURI / TO GO WITH China-conservation-animal, FEATURE by Yanan WANG (Photo credit should read NICOLAS ASFOURI/AFP/Getty Images)
