The National Tiger Conservation Centre (NTCC), covering 40ha in Lanchang, Pahang is scheduled for completion and will begin operating by the end of the year, said Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) director-general Datuk Abdul Kadir Abu Hashim.

He said the work on the NTCC project, costing RM15mil and located near the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, was now 90% ready.“Based on plans, tigers in animal-human conflict that are caught will be taken first to the National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Sungkai, Perak to be treated before they are transferred to NTCC prior to being returned to their natural habitat,” he said after a public lecture on managing wildlife at Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) here.
