MAYALAN TIGER

This accomplished drawing of a Malayan tiger exhibited in Where Did All the Animals Go? exhibition is accompanied by the following information:

Conservation Status: CRITICALLY ENDANGERED

Population: 80 - 120

BIOLOGY

Malayan tigers are found only in Peninsular Malaysia and are one of the most endangered wild cats on earth

The Malayan tiger is a symbol of bravery, strength and grandeur in Malaysia. The Malayan tiger is smaller than the Indo-chinese sub-species, and closer in size to the Sumatran tiger. In 2004, genetic analysis revealed that Malayan tigers were a distinct sub-species and reclassified as Panthera tigris jacksoni.

THREATS

Illegal trade in high-value tiger products including skins, bones, meat and tonics is a primary threat to tigers, which has led to their recent disappearance from broad areas of otherwise suitable habitat, and continues at unsustainable rates. Asia is a densely populated and rapidly developing region, bringing huge pressures to bear on the large wild areas required for viable tiger populations. Conversion of forest land to agriculture and silviculture, commercial logging, and human settlement are the main drivers of tiger habitat loss.

With their substantial dietary requirements, tigers require a healthy large ungulate prey base, but these species are also under heavy human subsistence hunting pressure and competition from domestic livestock. Tiger attacks on livestock and people can lead to intolerance of tigers by neighbouring communities and presents an ongoing challenge to managers to build local support for tiger conservation.

EXHIBITION & CONFERENCE

'Where Did All the Animals Go?' An Exhibition of North East School Children’s Biro Drawings Working with Artist, Jane Lee McCracken featuring Biro drawings of some of the world’s most endangered species, at Thought Foundation Art Gallery 20 June - 22 July 2019. Jane worked with over 400 children visiting five schools across the region to deliver Biro drawing workshops. Both exhibition and the Endangered Species Conference, also organised by Jane, are supported by international wildlife charity Born Free, with President and Co-Founder Will Travers, OBE headlining the conference. Included in the exhibition is a selection of Jane’s Biro drawings, which explore loss to the environment, generated by human destruction.

Both exhibition and conference call for wider awareness and compassion for wildlife affected by human destruction, and the subsequent impact of wildlife depletion on humanity if we don’t act now. These events, which also include workshops and film screenings during the exhibition, reveal the facts as to why and how species are threatened and provide access to vital knowledge as well as concise, key actions each one of us can take, so we can make positive changes for wildlife, both locally and globally.
