Sponsored walk for tigers ©

The Walk4Wildlife around Richmond Park was sadly cancelled by the organisers due to an issue beyond of their control and so Esther from 21st Century Tiger is now doing her sponsored walk for tigers in the New Forest on 29th October. What better time to walk through the New Forest but late October, when the autumn colours light up the canopy, the forest walk is truly stunning.  There are two walks to choose from. A daytime, family walk and a night-time walk suitable for those aged 14+.  The walk dates have been set to...

One such report we received this week is from the FFI coordinator of the Kerinci Seblat Tiger Protection and Conservation project in Sumatra. It shows just how much the Kerinci TPCUs have achieved in the first six months of the year. The units conducted 62 forest...

Amid the feel-good optimistic stories about the recent signs of growth in wild tiger populations, lies a sinister criminal element.  Those on the front line in Sumatra, have seen the threats facing wild tigers double in recent history.  Transnational Criminal Syndicates are channelling more money than ever into their exploits and we’ve seen the birth of the term ‘poach-to-order’.  The below is a blog straight from the field by Fauna & Flora Int, Tiger Protection Advisor, Debbie Martyr.

Lingkar Institute – Update ©

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...

The fatwa states that all living organisms, including endangered species such as tigers, “are created by Allah in order to maintain the balanced ecosystem and subjugated...
