Malaysia: Save the tiger


from American Buddhist Net – Buddhist News & Forum by Robyn

Don’t just celebrate the Year of the Tiger. Act to save this iconic species, whose numbers have plunged in the wild. Tiger experts have warned that the big cat will be extinct across 13 range countries if nothing is done to stop its hunting, loss of habitat and deprivation of prey.

In Malaysia, only some 500 Malayan tigers are believed to roam our forests – down from 3,000 some 50 years ago. For the species to rebound to a sustainable level, tiger conservationists calculated that we have to double the existing tiger population in 10 years.
