Video: Let the Tiger Go – Saving Wild Tigers in Sumatra

The once thriving population of tigers in Sumatra have raced to the edge of extinction. These magnificent big cats have been hunted by poachers, who sell their skins and bones on the black market, where they remain in high demand. That has caused the Sumatran tiger population to fall to under 400 animals remaining in the wild. In this short documentary, we’ll travel to Sumatra to see the team that is working to keep these creatures from vanishing. In the clip, we’ll witness their efforts to rescue once such tiger first hand, as they battle ruthless hunters looking to make a quick buck at the expense of an entire species.
