No more than 300 wild Malaysian tigers remain today

In 2009, the nation committed to double the number of wild tigers to 1,000 by 2020 under the National Tiger Action Plan, which spells out the measures needed to boost tiger numbers. With barely four years left to the deadline, we may have to concede defeat. Our tiger population has not grown, but dwindled.  When the plan was drawn up, it was thought that some 500 tigers still roam our forests. Many in the conservation circle found that to be a generous estimate and finally, in 2014, it was confirmed – we are down to our last 300 tigers.  Follow the link below to read how sadly the numbers of Malaysian tigers are dwindling in numbers.
