Save 10 metres of unprotected forest
This gift buys 10 square metres of unprotected forest connected to Taman Negara National Park in Malaysia, to save this critical wildlife corridor and significant tiger population. This lowland forest contains some of the most dense species richness in South East Asia, including the home of the critically endangered Malayan Tiger. There are less than 250 mature tigers left on the Malaysia peninsula.
The main challenges faced by the national park are illegal logging, the transfer of the land to rubber plantations, and poaching for animal pelts and bones used in traditional medicine. It is urgent that this area be secured for conservation as soon as possible. Securing this land will also benefit local communities through protecting the local ecosystems that provide for flood mitigation and climate regulation.
