China will set up two more national reserves for Siberian tigers in Jilin and Heilongjiang provinces to protect the endangered species, said an official from the Feline Research Center of the State Forestry Administration on Thursday.

The two reserves will be in Wangqing in Jilin, and Laoyeling in Heilongjiang, said Jiang Guangshun, deputy head of the center.

Siberian tigers mainly inhabit northeastern China, Russia's Far East region, and the Korean Peninsula. Currently, the number of wild Siberian tigers in the world is estimated at around 500.
