Towards Zero Poaching

Project - Tigers Alive!

WWF-Malaysia’s Tigers Alive! project was initiated following the completion of WWF-Malaysia’s human-tiger conflict work in FELDA Jerangau Barat, Terengganu in 2003. This project subsequently kicked off in Jeli, Kelantan, where human-tiger conflict was a major issue at that time. Since then, the project has expanded to the greater Belum-Temengor Forest Complex, a priority area for tigers as identified under the National Tiger Action Plan.

With support from partners and stakeholders, this project aims to develop long-term measures to improve the protection and management of key tiger populations and their habitats. This project will contribute towards the National Tiger Action Plan, a government strategy outlining the steps to be taken to ensure the long-term survival of tigers in the wild.

The Tigers Alive! project employs a holistic approach for tiger conservation, and is currently focusing on the Belum-Temengor Forest Complex as well as the larger Banjaran Titiwangsa (Main Range) landscape. The modules of this project include reducing poaching activities, conducting scientific monitoring on the population dynamics of tigers and their prey, raising awareness and reducing human-tiger conflicts through community engagement and educational programmes, ensuring forest connectivity, as well as monitoring land-use changes in tiger landscapes and communicating the cause and effects of human activities on nature to everyone. Each module forms an important part of a broader approach to addressing tiger conservation issues in Malaysia.
