Malaysia: History Repeats Again – Big Promises, No Action?

Like in 2010 during the St. Petersburg Tiger summit Malaysia made big promises: doubling the number of 500 tigers.

Now in 2019 the number of tigers is around 200, which is a decrease of 60 (!) per cent.

The responsible minister – dr. Xavier Jayakumar – made big promises. He said in 2018: “It might sound a bit drastic but if you want to save Malayan tigers, we have to take drastic action as well.”

Only strong words don’t save tigers. Give the people that know what to do the money so they can do it.

If you don’t have the money? Just raise the taxes on palm oil companies: they are the ones responsible for the situation of tigers in the first place.

Ranthambore tiger

Ranthambore tiger Conservation Succes Has A Dark Side.

Indian tiger reserve Ranthambore is doing extremely well with tiger conservation, but suffers many other problems due to their success.

Not only pollution is a major threat within the Ranthambore area, but the Ranthambore tigers are also very fragile as there are no corridors to leave or enter the area.

This not only means a poor gene pool, with more chances on viral diseases, but it also is a magnet for lethal problems.

We have witnessed more incidents than ever, both on the human as on the tiger side. And there is more to come, if there will be no action.

But there is hope. The Indian tiger authority (NTCA) and the state of Rajasthan is looking in to the matter.

Corbett tiger

Tiger Hunter And People Killer Jim Corbett Still Worshipped.

Jim Corbett has killed tens of tigers and more than 1200 people.

Despite these horrible numbers Corbett is honored as the person that has put wildlife conservation on the map in India. Not only that, the Indians named a nature park after him. International authorities even named a tiger sub-species after him (Panthere tigris corbetti – commonly known as the Indochinese tiger).

It seems that doing one good thing in life covers all the worse things.
