Citizen Action for Tigers

Join the fight to save the Malayan tiger. With only 300 wild tigers remaining, urgent action is needed to save this critically endangered national mascot.

CAT enables volunteers to help conservationists stop poaching and illegal encroachment in the Sungai Yu Wildlife Corridor, a priority biodiversity area in Pahang linking the western border of Taman Negara and the Main Range.

By participating in a guided weekend trek through this critical corridor, CAT volunteers will get to enjoy Malaysia’s great outdoors and experience its flora and fauna, while assisting MYCAT and local authorities in local conservation by reporting signs of illegal activity and disarming snares and traps. You may assist in checking camera traps to monitor the presence of wildlife in the area.

You can make a positive impact to the continued survival of the Malayan tiger. Since 2010, CAT activities have caused over a hundred snares to be destroyed saving many animals from death or injury and passed actionable information to authorities leading to raids and arrests of poachers and their middlemen.

HISTORY

February 14th, 2010 – first day of the lunar Year of the Tiger. A call came from an informant in the Sungai Yu Tiger Corridor: “Ada bangkai harimau.” (There is a tiger carcass). That was how the Year of the Tiger began for MYCAT.
