A deluge of postcards for Malaysia's tiger rangers



Posted on 06 September 2012  | 
They came from the Czech Republic, South Africa, Canada, US, Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, UK, Australia, Sweden, Singapore, Brazil, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Finland, New Zealand, Thailand, Poland, Austria, Turkey, China and also Malaysia. They are the postcards for rangers working in the Royal Belum State Park, an important tiger habitat in Malaysia.

The postcards were sent under the WWF Tigers Alive Initiative's Cards4tigers action to enable people from around the world to show support and appreciation for the rangers who work on the frontlines to keep wild tigers safe. Rangers are critical to Zero Poaching efforts but are seldom highlighted or shown appreciation. 

Launched on World Ranger Day on 31 July, the action will run till June next year. Results from the Cards4tiger action will be used to urge tiger range governments to invest more in the rangers and therefore enhance protection and enforcement work.
