Malayan Tiger needs you!

mycat

Malaysia’s endangered wildlife and their threatened home forests need conservation leaders.

Just this year the Malayan tiger became Critically Endangered, one step away from extinction with only 250-340 animals left in the wild. The goal of 1,000 tigers by year 2020 has been shattered by the relentless poaching pressure due to the demand from trade in tiger and other wildlife parts. Many other species like bear, sambar and pangolins are also vulnerable to poaching.

MYCAT is now recruiting volunteers to lead Citizen Action for Tigers (CAT) Walks to deter wildlife poaching and illegal activities in the Sungai Yu Tiger Corridor, the last remaining East West forest linkage between Taman Negara and the Main Range.
