The Sumatera Tigers are on the brink of extinction because of destruction of forests, poaching and clashes with humans.
According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), which placed video cameras at Bukit Tigapuluh National Park in the Provinces of Riau and Jambi, the number of Sumatera Tigers have decreased from 1,000 in the 1970s to only around 400 today.
It seemed that their numbers will be decreasing again, because a pulp and paper manufacturer i.e. Asia Pulp and Paper (APP), has plans to clear large areas of the forest.
