Tiger Conservation in the Field

About the Project

In 2012, Woodland Park Zoo and Panthera (a leading wild cat conservation organization) established a ten-year, $1 million partnership to enhance tiger conservation in Peninsular Malaysia, as part of Panthera's Tigers Forever Program. In concert with the National Tiger Action Plan of Malaysia, the program aims to strengthen tiger survival by identifying core populations and mitigating threats from poaching and habitat fragmentation. The project team will work cooperatively with Malaysia's Department of Wildlife and National Parks and local conservation non-profits and scientists. Read Woodland Park Zoo President Dr. Deborah Jensen's announcement about the tiger strategy and listen to a November 2013 radio interview with Vice President of Field Conservation Dr. Fred Koontz on how our zoo saves endangered animals in the wild.  You can also read about his journey on a a conservation CATWALK in Peninsular Malaysia last summer.
