WHY MUST WE SAVE OUR TIGERS?
PROTECTING TIGERS = PROTECTING PEOPLE
As an apex predator, Malayan tigers keep populations of prey species in check, which in turn maintains the balance in the ecosystem. This is not only important for wildlife, but for people too. Their habitat is natural forest, which we as humans rely on. Whether it is directly for our livelihoods or indirectly for food, for carbon sequestration or for other vital ecosystem services.
As the effects of climate change are becoming more apparent, natural forests are becoming increasingly important as they are our best bet to increase our resilience - they provide fresh water, clean air and regulate the climate to limit extreme weather, such as droughts and storms.
Poaching is the most urgent threat to the tiger’s survival in the wild. The very existence of the Malayan tiger is now critically threatened and on the brink of extinction. We do not want to be a part of the generation that stands to lose the Malayan tiger.
