A walk in the park for Sumatran tigress and her cubs


Welcome to the new look Fauna & Flora International (FFI) e-newsletter. With these monthly emails we'll be keeping you up to date with the latest news and blogs from the FFI website, as well as highlighting various conservation programmes and species we work to protect.

There was encouraging news recently as a team led by the FFI-supported Tiger Conservation Protection Unit and rangers from the Jambi Rapid Response Forest Guard arrested a tiger poacher in Sumatra, Indonesia.  FFI’s work to protect wildlife from poachers in Sumatra is crucial as there are fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild.

There was, however, more encouraging news for the Sumatran tiger. A few weeks later we posted camera trap footage to FFI's YouTube channel of a Sumatran tigress and her cubs.

The footage, from Kerinci Seblat National Park (see below), was captured by forestry worker Iding Achmad Haidir - who had learned his skills thanks to the support of Fauna & Flora International and our donors.


We hope you enjoy the pick of news, blogs and features below. Feel free to forward this email on to your friends and family. You can also become a fan of Fauna & Flora International on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter to be the first to hear about FFI related news.
