CRIT­I­CALLY EN­DAN­GERED

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Fewer than 400 Su­ma­tran tigers re­main in the wild. The ICUN Red List clas­si­fies it as ‘‘crit­i­cally en­dan­gered’’. The Auck­land Zoo Con­ser­va­tion Fund sup­ports 21st Cen­tury Tiger, which works un­der the um­brella of Fauna and Flora In­ter­na­tional, in world her­itage site Ker­inci Se­blat Na­tional Park in Su­ma­tra. The park pro­tects the sin­gle largest pop­u­la­tion of Su­ma­tran tigers. That has seen the Su­ma­tran tiger pop­u­la­tion in­crease from an es­ti­mated 140 an­i­mals in 2006 to at least 177 in­di­vid­u­als to­day. Visit 21stcen­tu­ry­tiger.org for in­for­ma­tion.
