In conjunction with Global Tiger Day on 29 July 2022, Miss Earth Malaysia 2022 Dr Kajel Kaur is raising funds for WWF-Malaysia’s tiger conservation efforts. Please support her efforts, thanks so much for your meaningful support.
“I started feeding stray dogs more actively when Tiger got really sick. He was given to me as a gift, and a gift he has certainly been. He has been having various congenital problems ever since he was a puppy, but I named him Tiger because of the fighter that he is. He continues to motivate me daily, and looking after him is a blessing. He is such a happy dog, and so is his girlfriend Sherni. I vowed to feed dogs when Tiger got really sick, and I have done that every month for the last 4 years since his recovery. He inspires me to keep fighting and I will keep helping stray animals and Tigers for the rest of my life because of my very own Tiger. My Tiger and Sherni are my life’s biggest blessings, they are my children. Raising RM10,000 for Malayan Tigers as Miss Earth Malaysia 2022, is to honour my own Tiger and Sherni (on the right in the photo).” – Dr Kajel Kaur
About Malayan Tigers
Back in the 1950s, Malaysia was thought to have 3,000 wild tigers. Now fewer than 150 remain; primarily due to widespread poaching.
Sadly, the Malayan tiger is now officially listed as Critically Endangered under the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. This means that the Malayan tiger is on the brink of extinction.
As an apex predator, Malayan tigers keep populations of prey species in check, which in turn maintains the balance in the forest ecosystem. We all need forests for fresh water, clean air and to regulate the climate to limit extreme weather patterns, such as droughts and floods.
Saving tigers means saving forests – and ourselves.
We urgently need your support to help our front liners in the field. WWF-Malaysia conducts intensive patrolling in Belum-Temengor and monitors poaching hotspots, whilst channeling relevant information to enforcement agencies. This has enabled:
• More ground to be patrolled.
• More threats to be uncovered.
• More snares to be removed.
• More arrests of poachers.
Your important donations will enable WWF-Malaysia to:
• Support wages for field assistants to conduct patrolling and camera-trapping.
• Provide daily rations for patrolling work.
• Purchase camping equipment to carry out field surveys.
• Cover logistics and transport costs.
• Support critical awareness and communications initiatives conducted with the community and civil society.
WWF-Malaysia is supporting the Malaysian Government to establish long-term, sustainable solutions to protect Malaysia’s tigers and secure a future for all the biodiversity in the Belum-Temengor Forest Complex.
