About 3,000 individuals left living in the wild

The tiger (Panthera tigris) is classified as “endangered” in the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. Its historical range has dwindled by 93 percent and its distribution is severely fragmented. As its population continues to shrink, the time is now to step up our efforts to protect this iconic feline from going extinct.

cat wALK in THE malaysian jungle

19 - 21 July 2019

The tiger population in the Malaysian jungle is not facing threats from cracking bullets but from deadly snares. Trapped animals suffer horribly as snares can be left unchecked for days on end. Poachers, driven by the trade for illegal wildlife products, use snares to indiscriminately trap all kinds of wildlife, including tigers and their prey. Join Vilma and Carmen, co-founders of SWAG, as they head into the Malaysian jungle to support the Malaysian Conservation Alliance for Tigers (MYCAT) and take citizen action to protect the Malayan tiger by helping to set up and check for camera traps and to spot and remove illegal snares.
