Tulsa Zoo Continues Malayan Tiger Conservation Efforts

The Tulsa Zoo has continued its conservation support of a very important campaign that focuses on the preservation of Malaysian tiger habitats, along with the anti-poaching efforts within this range. The Tulsa Zoo has been a multiyear supporter of the Malayan tiger Species Survival Plan (SSP). The zoo also acts as a conservation partner within the Tiger Conservation Campaign.

Specific field conservation information is very sensitive as poachers try to use field conservation reports to gain an ad advantage against the conservationists who are fighting to protect the species. However, there was recent news that law enforcement arrested two suspects in September for poaching and trading tiger skins and bones. The violators are subject to a maximum of 5 years in prison and a fine of $10,000 USD. This news indicates that we are making positive progress as we work to protect the Malayan tiger.
