International Tiger Day 2023: Turning Conflict To Coexistence

It's International Tiger Day on the 29th of July, celebrated annually to raise awareness for tiger conservation. In Malaysia, we are still fighting tooth and nail to protect the critically endangered Malayan Tiger, our symbol of national pride, and the apex predator in our forests. With stats putting their numbers at less than 150 left in the wild, what more can we do to keep them in the wild, for generations to come? We discuss this and more with Christopher Wong, the Tiger Lead for WWF-Malaysia, while also discussing recent cases of Human-Tiger Conflict (HTC) and what more can be done to foster coexistence instead.
