Tiger land destroyed by a bulldozer

leave a comment »

Illegal forest destruction endangers tigers by breaking up their natural habitat.  As a result of living in fragments of their former homeland, tigers struggle to find mates, food and shelter.

New video footage from a ‘camera trap’ in a protected forest in Sumatra lets you see illegal deforestation happening for yourselves.  A silent, two-minute video clip makes the tigers’ plight alarmingly clear.

There are only 400 tigers left in Indonesia.

To find out more how you can help these magnificent animals, please support the World Wildlife Fund and their Year of the Tiger campaign.
