Only 400 wild Sumatran tigers are left in the world. That’s fewer tigers than sheets in a ream of paper. There are no tigers to spare, and there’s no time to spare if we want to save them.
In 1930, there were three subspecies of unique, majestic tigers found in Indonesia. Today, two of them are extinct – and the last one is in real trouble.
They need our help now.
The Sumatran tiger is classified as “critically endangered” – on the brink of extinction and barely hanging on. They’ve lost 93% of their habitat because companies like Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) are destroying their forest homes. Tigers are left to roam barren tracks where they are easily slaughtered by poachers for their body parts or shot by the people moving in.
We can’t wait another day – not when we're dealing with a population of only 400 tigers. If we don’t act now, every one of these beautiful animals will soon be dead.
Without you, the tigers don’t stand a chance. Without your action, APP will continue lining its pockets with profits, poachers will continue shooting these tigers and reselling their body parts in places like China, and these last Sumatran tigers will just be collateral damage.
But together, we can stop them.
Asia Pulp & Paper has been driving Indonesian rainforest destruction at alarming rate to make their products, like packaging for Mattel’s toy products. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We can save the Sumatran tigers from extinction. But we’ve got to act now. Send your letter today and tell Mattel to dump Asia Pulp & Paper and protect forests today!
