There are now less than 150 Malayan tigers left in Malaysia compared to the 3,000 tigers that once roamed our forests in the 1950s.
The future of our Malayan tigers is at stake as their existence is severely threatened by poaching and the illegal wildlife trade, habitat loss due to deforestation and fragmentation, as well as overhunting of the tigers' main prey.
The Malayan tiger is now officially listed as Critically Endangered under the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, which is alarming as this majestic creature, which proudly flanks our jata negara, is the iconic symbol of national pride for all Malaysians. To lose the tiger to extinction is akin to losing our national pride and identity.
