According to Kremlin’s official website:
“Putin Vladimir Putin enjoys watching animals in their natural habitat and taking part in scientific projects. He is Chairman of the Russian Geographical Society’s Board of Trustees, and is actively engaged in the protection of rare species by overseeing the respective programs. The animal species under his personal patronage are the Amur tiger, white whale, polar bear and snow leopard.”
