About this book

Indonesia is set to lose its last remaining Tiger species - the Sumatran Tiger - if the widespread illegal trade in Tiger parts and rampant habitat loss is not stopped.

This new report on trade in the Sumatran Tiger reveals that as many as 50 Sumatran Tigers were poached per year between 1998 and 2002. The latest available figures show that there are between 400 and 500 tigers left in the wild in Sumatra.

This report clearly exposes the relentless killing of a critically endangered species by professional and semi-professional hunters. This is being driven by a substantial domestic Indonesian market for tiger skins and other parts, especially claws and teeth for trophies, charms and souvenirs. Tiger parts are readily available from dealers, within Sumatra, many of these openly displayed for sale.
