Keep the 400 Remaining Sumatran Tigers Alive

About the Petition

Sumatran tigers are the smallest tiger subspecies. Even though they’re protected by anti-poaching laws, these tigers' numbers are declining due to habitat loss and illegal poaching—less than 400 remain in the world today.  

These tigers, only found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, are threatened by illegal palm oil growers, paper companies and illegal poaching. They have lost much of their primary habitat in “Thirty Hills” near Bukit Tigapuluh, and nearly 25,868 square miles of forest between 1985 and 1997.

The Sumatran tiger is an indictor of biodiversity and environmental health: protecting them is crucial. Stand with the World Wildlife Fund and urge the government of Indonesia to save them from extinction.

Real efforts need to be made to protect the Sumatran tiger and their habitat. They have roamed in Sumatra for over a million years, making them a fragile, genetically isolated species.  

You should monitor the Sumatran tiger population and ensure their safety. Poaching incidents and habitat destruction need to stop immediately. I stand with the World Wildlife Fund in urging the government of Indonesia to protect the Sumatran tiger’s habitat and save them from extinction. 

Sincerely,
