WWF Camera Catches Rare Tiger Footage

WWF Australia is astounded by the rare footage caught below in the Indonesian Riau Province. The film features amazing scenes of a Sumatran tiger taken from a wildlife corridor that connects the Rimbang Baling Wildlife Reserve and Bukit Tigapuluh National Park. It also shows that, over time, man is destroying the homes of this beautiful creatures for the sake of palm oil…

this must stop.

WWF-Indonesia’s Director of Forest and Species Program, Ian Kosasih, said –

Because of its status both as a protected area and limited production forest, the area cannot be developed as a palm oil plantation. To stop illegal activities such as this, the palm oil industry should not source its material from farmers or producers who develop their plantations illegally.

Land clearing practices within this area for palm oil plantations has been going on for far too long, and now is the time to stop. Workers in the area frequently find tiger tracks, and this video shows that Tigers do still frequent the area, even after their home has been destroyed.

With only 400 Sumatran tigers left in Indonesia, about – around 12% of the estimated global population, please help us protect tigers and their habitat by adopting a tiger today.
