On the brink
The world’s tigers are vanishing from the wild at an alarming rate. Poaching and human encroachment on tiger habitat are pushing these magnificent animals toward extinction.
But together, we can help save them.
Tigers were once widespread across the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Due to poaching and habitat loss over the past century, and especially in the past 50 years, only two large populations of Sumatran tigers now remain.
Donations to The Zoo Society’s Dr. Holly Reed Conservation Fund for the Tiger Conservation Campaign support anti-poaching patrols and community education in Sumatra. They also support the Species Survival Plan and habitat protection.
Tigers need rainforest to survive – rainforest that is being cut down by humans to create plantations for palm oil, used in products from peanut butter to cosmetics. You can help tigers by choosing products with responsible palm oil.
