Sumatran Tiger is the last indigenous tiger subspecies of Indonesia and the smallest tiger subspecies in the world. In the past, two other subspecies of tiger that ever existed in Indonesia are Javan Tiger (Panthera tigris sondaica) and Bali Tiger (Panthera tigris balica). Both tiger subspecies have been declared extinct due to hunting and habitat destruction.
Currently the remaining Sumatran Tiger in the wild is estimated fewer than 400 tigers. This number is expected to continue declining along with the high number of poaching both on the tiger itself and its prey such as Sambar Deer. In addition, forest degradation factor due to encroachment and illegal logging which are damaging Sumatran Tiger habitat are also the contributing factors that will cause the extinction of Sumatran Tiger.
Therefore, Sumatran Tiger need your help to continue its existence for our future children.
