Symbolically Adopt a Tiger

 

There were 100,000…

Now, there are almost none.

Save our last tigers.

Tigers, emblem of strength and bravery; apex predators that ensure the balance of the forest ecosystem. Due to unsustainable land-use practices and poaching, they are losing their habitat.

They are about to be extinct. That same animal that appears on the Malaysian Coat of Arms, and also on the national football team symbol. Please help save our magnificent Malayan tigers and their forest habitat; your symbolic adoption will enable WWF-Malaysia to:

  • Secure funds for tiger monitoring and anti-poaching efforts
  • Monitor the land-use change surrounding tiger habitats
  • Increase awareness on the importance of tiger conservation

Symbolically Adopt a Sun Bear

 

The Malayan sun bear, named for the golden crescent patch of fur on its chest, is the smallest among the eight species of bears found worldwide. It can be found in Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia.

The Malayan sun bear’s omnivorous diet helps to keep forests healthy:
• By consuming a large variety of fruit species, they help to disperse seeds.
• Since termites are their primary food source, they keep termite populations in check, thus enabling tropical trees to grow and thrive.
• They dig for insects such as beetles and ants in the soil, which enhances the forest’s nutrient cycle through the mixing of rich and poor soil.
• They help create nesting sites for animals such as hornbills and flying squirrels by tearing open tree trunks to reach the honey inside.

Sadly, the Malayan Sun Bear is threatened by:
• Habitat loss due to forest conversion for urban development and monoculture plantations.
• Poaching; this adorable bear is cruelly killed and exploited for its bile, meat and bones.

Although WWF-Malaysia does not have a dedicated Sun Bear project, our conservation efforts that focus on species such as the Malayan Tiger benefit all the wildlife living in our forests. Your symbolic adoption will enable WWF-Malaysia to:
• Secure funds for monitoring and anti-poaching efforts
• Promote the protection of crucial habitats
• Build awareness and support for wildlife and forest conservation

Symbolically Adopt a Turtle

 

Marine turtle numbers continue to plummet in most parts of the world and some populations are on the brink of extinction due to:
• Loss of nesting and feeding habitats
• Egg-collection for consumption
• Fishery-related mortality and pollution

In the 1950s, some 10,000 Leatherback turtle nests were recorded at Rantau Abang, Terengganu. There have been no recorded nestings of Leatherbacks since 2011.

We cannot afford to let our Hawksbill, Olive Ridley and Green turtles suffer the same fate. It is not too late to help these majestic species. You have the power to save their lives; symbolically adopt a turtle today and help WWF-Malaysia to:
• Monitor and patrol nesting beaches to minimise the sale and consumption of turtle eggs
• Conduct research to understand marine turtle habitats and biology, and enhance conservation efforts
• Continue our efforts in calling for stronger and more holistic laws to protect turtles

You can be a part of the fight to save this national icon. Together, we can ensure that these ancient mariners are around for generations to come.

Symbolically Adopt an Elephant

 

Borneo elephants are found mostly in the Malaysian state of Sabah. This makes Sabah home to the world’s smallest known sub-species of elephants.

Sadly, Borneo elephants are:
• Losing their habitat due to displacement by large scale agriculture and plantations.
• Coming into more contact with people thus increasing human elephant conflict due to loss and fragmentation of forests.

These endemic Borneo elephants are losing their homes and families. With only about 1,500 of them left in the wild in Borneo, urgent and continuous actions need to be performed in order to conserve these gentle giants.

Symbolically adopt an elephant today and help WWF to:
• Conduct elephant satellite collaring to identify their key space requirements and to reduce future conflict.
• Establish wildlife corridors to connect fragmented habitats.
• Promote coexistence between humans and wildlife.
• Collaborate with government and non-government agencies on wildlife surveys, research and capacity building for protected area management.

Symbolically Adopt an Orangutan

 

Fossil records show that orangutans have been here on Earth for more than 800,000 years and populations once spread from China to as far as Sulawesi.

Today, orangutans in the wild can only be found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra.

Orangutan numbers are declining due to:
• Habitat destruction caused by land-use changes for timber harvesting and monoculture plantations.
• Hunting by farmers in retaliation for the destruction to their crops.

Symbolically adopt an orangutan today and help WWF-Malaysia to:
• Carry out restoration of logged-over and fire-impacted forest area by replanting a mixture of native tree species.
• Promote protection of crucial habitats.
• Increase awareness on orangutan conservation.
