Indonesia's Sumatran tiger could be the first large predator to become extinct this century, unless poaching for body parts and illegal logging in the area are stopped. Today, the total population of Sumatran tigers left in the wild is estimated to be fewer than 400.
Urge the Balai Konservasi Sumber Daya Alam (Nature Conservancy Agency) to implement laws to ban trade of tiger parts and to stop widespread logging of their habitat by multinational paper companies.
I ask you to urgently increase enforcement efforts and implementation of laws to stop illegal logging and to ban trade of tiger parts and products, or extinction is near for the last of Sumatra's tigers.
I urge you to take action against the markets, trade hubs and retail outlets in Sumatra and also to call for a moratorium on clearing in Sumatra's lowland forests by multinational paper companies - The preservation of tiger reserves needs to be enforced with stiffer penalties for those who break the law.
Of the 8 species of tigers, only 5 are still in existence today. It would be a great tragedy if we couldn't show these beautiful animals to future generations - once they are gone, they will be gone forever. Please act now before the Sumatran tiger becomes extinct.
