Save Malaysian Tigers

The tiger, largest of all cats is one of the most threatened species on Earth. They are poisoned, shot, trapped, and snared, and the majority of these animals are sought to meet the demands of continuing illegal wildlife trade.

Currently, there are less than 3200 tigers on the planet, less than 500 Malaysian tigers and of the nine known subspecies of tigers, three have become extinct.

Planet factorie foundation and WWF have worked together to draw attention to the plight of the world’s dwindling population of wild tigers and to raise vital funds to ensure the Malaysian tigers’ survival.

Launched in the Year of the Tiger, this project provided vital funds for WWF’s on-ground mission in the Malaysian forests. This project has now concluded.

Funds raised went towards:

  • Camera trapping surveys
  • Anti-poaching patrols
  • Allowed data to be collected on tiger population size
  • Trained new tiger conservation team members
