Malayan Tiger Conservation


Malayan tiger quick facts

Where they live: Peninsular Malaysia
How many remain: Probably fewer than 500
Major threats: Habitat loss, poaching of tigers and their prey
Projects we support: Anti-poaching efforts, Education & outreach


Malayan tigers, until recently considered “Indochinese” tigers, are native to the tropical forests of peninsular Malaysia. In this region’s protected areas, the tiger habitat that remains can likely support more tigers. But in order for Malayan tiger populations to grow, poaching of tigers and their prey must be kept at bay.

In Malaysia, our campaign is supporting the Wildlife Conservation Society’s efforts to increase the effectiveness of anti-poaching patrols, and to strengthen anti-poaching laws. We're also supporting tiger-themed education and outreach activities in areas close to tiger habitats.
