Save the Indochinese Tiger in Thailand

  • By: Animal Advocates
  • Target: Thailand Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment
There are fewer than 300 tigers remaining in Thailand, and a new dam project threatens one of their last intact habitats. The project would destroy a national park in western Thailand- flooding 8 square miles where tigers are having a sucessful recovery.

The Mae Wong dam also threatens tiger natural prey species such as wild pig and sambar deer. Creating the dam will push tigers out of their habitats and into direct conflict with human beings.


The Indochinese tiger is already under threat from shrinking habitat, illegal trade in tiger parts for traditional medicines and a scarcity of prey. With only 3,200 wild tigers remaining worldwide, we ask Thailand to support conservation efforts and protect critically endangered tigers and their habitat- not destroy it with the Mae Wong dam project.
