Tiger: Their Survival in Our Hands
The smallest tiger subspecies, the Malayan tiger is found only in Peninsular Malaysia and Southern parts of Thailand. In fact, it was only recognized as a tiger subspecies in 2004. In the past, the Malayan tiger and Indo-Chinese tiger were thought to be the same species.
Due to habitat loss, forest fragmentation and poaching, it is now critically endangered and the numbers down to mere 200 individuals in the wild. These factors also mainly cause prey shortages resulting in the declining in tiger number.
We need to save Malaysia’s endemic tigers, so the animals can avoid the fate of their cousins Balinese and Javanese tigers that have gone extinct in the region in recent decades.
Act now to save Malayan tiger.
