12 tiger poachers arrested & convicted on Sumatra

21st Century Tiger supported two projects in and around the second largest National Park on Sumatra, Kerinci Seblat.  A new project “Protecting the Sumatran Tiger in Bengkulu” and “Kerinci Seblat Tiger Protection“, now in its 17th year of support!  The Park is home to the second largest breeding (or source) population of wild tigers in Indonesia and covers nearly 14,000 km2 and is a priority area for tiger conservation.
