FROM http://www.zsl.org: Join our campaign to save Sumatran tigers. With just 300 Sumatran tigers left in the wild, it’s time to act. Tiger SOS is a campaign to raise money for ZSL‘s tiger conservation work in Sumatra as well as developing a state-of-the art Tiger Conservation Headquarters right in the heart of central London.
The Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is the smallest of the remaining five tiger subspecies. It has lived exclusively, for over a million years, in the once extensive moist tropical jungles of the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. Their population in the wild is now heavily fragmented and is estimated to range between 400 and 500 individuals. Groups of between a few and several dozen tigers can be found principally in and around Sumatra’s national parks.
