Malaysia had the world's highest rate of forest loss between 2000 and 2012. As forests disappear, prey disappear, poachers infiltrate, and tigers face a battle to survive.
The creation of Woodland Park Zoo’s exhibit artists, this tiger rises from the ashes to inspire us to fight by its side.
Woodland Park Zoo and Panthera work together with on-the-ground partners in Malaysia to conserve tigers and their forests. Every zoo visit makes this work possible.
“Like the mythical phoenix rising from the ashes, we imagined our tiger reborn from a burning forest. Rising up from near extinction and the threats of poaching and habitat destruction, our tiger represents what compassion, conservation and human action can do to help save tigers and give life to forests.”
