Du 26 aout au 20 septembre, une importante campagne de sensibilisation à la protection effective du tigre dans la péninsule malaise tentera de provoquer un renversement de tendance face au terrible déclin de cet animal depuis des décennies (division des effectifs par deux en cinq ans, par douze en 60 ans). Bernama.com, ce jour. Berita Tergempar. "Malayan Tiger Awareness Campaign at mid Valley Megamall from Aug 26 to Sept 20."
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 17 (Bernama) -- A Malayan Tiger Awareness Campaign will be held at the Mid Valley Megamall here from Aug 26 to Sept 20 in conjunction with National Day and Malaysia Day.
World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Malaysia marketing general manager Yeap Chong Wei said the WWF experts on tiger conservation in Belum-Temengor forest in Perak would also deliver a public talk on the matter during the campaign.
"The Belum-Temenggor Forest Complex in Perak is the focal area for WWW-Malaysia's tiger conservation effort, which is a priority site under the National Tiger Action Plan," he said in a statement here Monday.
He said among the conservation efforts being carried out at the area was the implementation of a systematic anti-poaching patrol system and a more effective management of the Royal Belum State Park by introducing a set of minimum protected areas standards for tigers.
Yeap said the awareness campaign, which is co-organised by Mid Valley Megamall and WFF, would also engage the public through interactive forest and tiger-themed exhibition, which was hoped to create awareness on the dwindling number of Malayan tigers and the importance of saving the national iconic animal.
WWF will also launch sales of t-shirt designed by 12-year-old savant artist Delwin Cheah, as well as other merchandises during the campaign, with the profit to be channeled to the WWF-Malaysia's Malayan tiger conservation programme, he added.
Yeap said there were only 250 to 340 Malayan tigers in the country right now, compared to in 1950s where Malaysia was thought to have as many as 3,000 tigers.
The Malayan tiger, which is one of the six remaining tiger subspecies in the world, is only found in Peninsular Malaysia.
