SAVE OUR MALAYAN TIGER

Malayan Tigers are protected under the Wildlife Conservation Act 2010 (Act 716) as a Totally Protected Species.

MALAYAN TIGER

The Malayan Tiger, or its scientific name Panthera Tigris Jacksoni, is a subspecies unique to the Malay Peninsula. Globally, there are nine subspecies of tigers, three of which are extinct.

Malayan Tigers are protected under the Wildlife Conservation Act 2010 (Act 716) as a Totally Protected Species.

The 1st National Tiger Survey observation conducted in nearly 75% survey plots of tiger habitat in 2016 to 2018 found that the number of Malayan tigers were recorded to be less than 200. The trend shows that the population of Malayan Tigers is at a worrying state.

If no drastic measures are taken to address the decline of the Malayan Tiger population, Malaysia will most likely lose the species to extinction in five to ten years.

Critically Endangered Species

Tigers have been living in our forests for centuries. It is a national icon and can be seen everywhere, from Malaysia’s coat of arms to the emblems of government and private institutions.

We don't have much time left otherwise our Malayan Tiger will get into extinction. Our Coat of Arms of Malaysia, PDRM and Royal Malaysian Customs icon for example, are using the tigers' as their logo. What if there is no tiger left and all are found dead? It'll become meaningless...This is our country's gems and we need to preserve it. In the point of fact, many corporate companies such as Maybank and etc that has been using Malayan Tiger as their iconic logo. Not to mention our proud national football team also uses the majestic Malayan Tiger as their icon…
