It shows just how much the Kerinci TPCUs have achieved in the first six months of the year. The units conducted 62 forest...

21st Century Tiger supports specialist Tiger Protection & Conservation Units (TPCU) in and around the National Park under a partnership between Fauna & Flora International and Kerinci Seblat National Park (KSNP).  However, because of the size of the national park, some areas lack routine patrols and capacity to adequately protect the area.  Consequently,  tigers in some areas of the National Park are very vulnerable to poaching. This serious problem will be addressed by the Lingkar Institute in a strategically important...
