Story of Support

As recently as 100 years ago, as many as 100,000 wild tigers roamed across Asia. Today, only 3,900 tigers are left in the wild. The culprit? Rampant poaching for their skins, hair, teeth, bones, and organs.

Panthera, the global wild cat conservation organization, created its Tigers Forever program in 2006 to stop the killing and reverse the decline in tiger numbers.  Today, our science-based approach to saving tigers is working: tiger populations are recovering at key Tigers Forever sites in Nepal, India, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Tigers occupy some of the most remote and difficult to navigate terrain in the world. Still, with poachers, where there’s a will, there’s a way.

That’s why Panthera is on the front lines, standing between poachers and tigers.  In partnerships on the ground with local governments, law enforcement, and NGOs, we are:

  • Using the latest technology, including our patented PoacherCam covert camera traps, to monitor tiger populations and detect illegal activity in protected areas;
  • Collecting and analyzing intelligence to disrupt poaching networks;
  • Training park rangers in sophisticated anti-poaching tactics;
  • Developing protocols to make sure poachers are caught, convicted and sentenced.

Though Muli’s beginnings were grim, today she has more than a fighting chance to survive. In Tambling, with its massive expanse of magnificent unspoiled habitat, abundance of natural prey, and protection from poachers, the freedom Muli now enjoys is the very essence of Tigers Forever.

With your support, we can continue to expand our footprint into areas like Tambling with the greatest potential for recovery. Together, we can bring wild tigers back from the brink.

Tambling Wildlife Nature Conservation (TWNC) is a valued partner of Panthera’s Tigers Forever program. Muli’s story would not be possible without the passion and commitment of Mr. Tomy Winata and the entire Tambling team to protect wild Sumatran tigers and their forest habitats with world-class law enforcement. While the area now managed by TWNC once made headlines for its rampant loss of forest and wildlife, it today represents a beacon of hope.
