Can you spare £3 to help the Sumatran tiger?

Posted on


Sumatran tigers are trapped and dying.


Question:  Why?


Answer:   snares. 

So why are Sumatran tigers trapped and dying from snares? 


It’s because snares are brutal and the perfect thing for poachers to use in their quest to take down the beautiful Sumatran tiger.


Bali tigers and Javan tigers died this way.   And the need to change the status of the Sumatran tiger is urgent.  For the Sumatran tiger, the smallest of all the tiger sub-species, is going the same way.


There are less than 400 Sumatran tigers living in the wild – that’s an estimate.  These cats are generally shy, and keen to avoid people.  The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species lists them as Critically Endangered.


Why are their numbers so low?

  • Poaching
  • Habitat loss
  • Human-wildlife conflict


Kerinci Seblat National Park and the Ulu Masen and Leuser ecosystems of Aceh on the Indonesian island of Sumatra are global priority areas for tiger conservation.

So what can we all do to help?

In an email today that I received, Fauna and Flora International are asking Care2 members to donate £3 today to help equip their highly trained rangers.

The rangers will work closely with networks of informants who will guide them to active poaching efforts – meaning they can get rid of the snares.


Please donate today
