So here’s what we have to do to save one tiger:
- Minimise conflict between humans and tigers so any situations that occur cannot be exploited by the poachers and the chance of revenge killings is minimised
- Build partnerships with local people, who can help us monitor poaching activity
- Raise political support for wildlife crime legislation in the area
- Investigate poaching and wildlife crime to stop poachers before they enter the area
- Patrol the area to ensure that poachers are caught
- Remove all the snares being laid by poachers.
These aren’t actions that are easy or simple to take. And the money needed to support this work reflects that.
You can be a part of this campaign by making a donation today.
Here’s an extract from an email we received from Debbie Martyr, the project leader in Sumatra, which shows the team’s determination:
“Our goal is to send a clear message to the gangs threatening tigers and other wildlife: Don’t poach or trade tigers from Kerinci Seblat National Park.. we know who you are, you will be arrested, you will be prosecuted ..and yes, you will go to prison.”
We’re building on years of work in Sumatra, and your donation is helping us to carry that legacy on into the future.
So please donate what you can – if we can save one tiger, we could save them all.
