It is estimated that there are only 500 to 600 Sumatran Tigers remaining in the wild.
The main threats to their survival in the wild include habitat loss due to palm oil plantations, human-wildlife conflict, and illegal trade.
Sumatran Tiger cullings are a frequent occurance in rural villages. As land development grows, the contact between village settlements and wildlife increases tenfold, creating a powder keg situation that results in the wrongful and cruel deaths of animals.
