Sumatran Tiger Habitat Protection
The Sumatran tiger's rainforest is disappearing at an unprecedented rate, and if we don’t work to stop the destruction and preserve what precious little habitat is left, the Sumatran tiger subspecies will not survive.
As a non-partisan organisation, we collaborate with conservation projects, as well as providing forest protection through our own Save Forest program to deter wildlife poaching, illegal logging and land clearing in Indonesia.
The money goes directly to our Wildlife Protection Units who physically patrol and safeguard the forest. These units are extremely proficient in stopping illegal loggers and poachers. The simple equation is, the more units we can financially support, the more forest and Sumatran tigers we can ensure are protected long term.
This initiative stops the problem at the source. If we can all unite and protect as much remaining rainforest as possible then their habitat and their existence will be safe.
Where Your Money Goes
The ‘Save Forest ‘program raises money specifically for the International Tiger Project’s Wildlife Protection Units.
In terms of conservation value for your donation, this program is extremely effective. Not only are you protecting Sumatran tigers to live free in the wild as they should, your donation provides local employment for young men who otherwise have to work in the palm oil industry. The Save Forest program truly works toward stopping the problems facing Sumatran tigers at the source, rather than once the damage has been done, and the forest is gone.
100% of your donation goes directly towards the Wildlife Protection Units, which includes the running costs for each unit including equipment, wages and uniforms. Every contribution is welcome and appreciated!
One ranger in our units protects an area the size of 10 Km². Through our monitoring and patrol research we know that there are 1 to 2 Sumatran tigers per 100 Km².
Your contribution will be used specifically for supporting the teams and programs that protect the forest through law enforcement, monitoring, conflict mitigation and education.
Save Forest protects all the Sumatran tigers that live within this forest as well as all the other rainforest species, such as orangutans and elephants that also inhabit it.
