Greenpeace on Sumatran Tigers

Could we lose the last 400 remaining Sumatran tigers to fast-food packaging?

At the current rate of destruction, it’s possible. Every day, Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) bulldozes giant swaths of tiger habitat in Indonesia for fast-food packaging and other throw-away goods. It’s a tragic situation for these tigers.

Their homes are being destroyed, their lives forever changed. And then — as they roam through the devastation that once was forest — they can be shot and killed by poachers for their body parts or by the people moving in. If we lose these last 400 tigers, there's nothing we can do to bring them back.

Now more than ever we need your help to ramp up the pressure on companies buying rainforest fiber from APP and to save the last Sumatran tigers.
