Your chosen animal

The Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is the smallest of all tiger subspecies and is native to the Indonesian island of Sumatra.  It lives in forest habitats in both lowland and mountainous areas.  Its stripes are narrower than those of other tiger species and it also has a distinctive bearded and maned appearance, especially the males. 

Sumatran tigers face many threats including habitat loss, fragmentation and poaching for the illegal trade in traditional medicine. Although there are some protected areas for the tiger on Sumatra and conservation efforts are continuing, many tigers are killed by poachers even within the protected zones. As a result of all this and the declining population, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has listed the Sumatran tiger as a Critically Endangered species.  This means that the Sumatran tiger is considered to be facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild.

Our Sumatran tigers are part of the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme.

Would you like to Gift Aid your donation?

I would like the RZSS to reclaim the tax on this donation from me and my immediate family. I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I would also like to Gift Aid all donations I have made to the RZSS in the last four years and all donations in the future until I notify you otherwise.
