Numbers Don’t Lie: This Infographic Proves Sumatran Tigers are in Crisis
On the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, Sumatran tigers are facing the most serious threat to their survival they have ever encountered. It’s not a new predator at the top of the food chain, or a devastating illness.
As demand for products like palm oil increases, tiger habitat is being destroyed to make way for plantations. Most Sumatran forests are owned by the government and leased out for profitable commercial activities. Petitions and political appeals to protect the forest haven’t worked to dissuade the government from choosing conservation over profit. The situation is dire.
