Sumatra is on Fire

Sumatra in Indonesia has been burning since early August. It is suspected that irresponsible land clearing is to be blamed for this. The dry season is expected to continue until December. Until then, these forests are still at high risk of wildfire.

The Sumatran tiger is one of world’s smallest tigers. They rely on corridors in central Sumatra to get to the north, south or east of the island WWF is working with local authorities and conservation partners to control and put out fires.

Central Sumatra is one of the key tiger landscapes we are working in as part of our goal towards doubling wild tigers by 2022. We need your support to protect and restore forests.
