Where they live: Peninsular Malaysia
How many remain: Probably fewer than 500
Major threats: Habitat loss, poaching of tigers and their prey
Projects we support: Anti-poaching efforts, Tiger & prey research

In this region’s protected areas, the tiger habitat that remains can likely support more tigers. But in order for Malayan tiger populations to grow, poaching of tigers and their prey must be kept at bay.
