Berani, a stunning male tiger, lives in the hilly southern tip of the Bukit Tigapuluh National Park and into the lowland areas of the ex-logging concessions known as Hatma Hutani, Manggatal and Dalek Esa. These concessions surround the southern sections of the national park. This is the area of both the Orangutan Sanctuary and Orangutan Release Site supported by The Orangutan Project (See areas marked in blue, yellow and green on the map). Being a male, Berani’s territory is much larger than females. His territory overlaps both the territories of Cinta and Langka, both tigresses in the ITP adoption programme.
The young male tiger faces his most challenging time when he leaves his mother and seeks to find his own territory. Resident males have been observed to tolerate subordinate males in their range, but in general, resident males exclude other males. Most young males are forced to live in less favourable habitat, biding their time until they can displace a resident male and gain their own territory. This usually occurs when the resident male gets too old or suffers severe injury.
By adopting Berani today, you are helping fund our activities to protect this vital population of Sumatran tigers from the threats they face. You will receive regular updates on what the International Tiger Project is doing to help protect this population of Critically Endangered Sumatran tigers in the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem as well as any information revealed through camera trap photographs and daily patrols by the Wildlife Protection Units.
Depending on the adoption package you purchase you will receive
an adoption pack for yourself or your loved ones.
