- DISTRIBUTION & HABITAT
The Sumatran Tiger is native to the Island of Sumatra in Indonesia. Their preferred habitat is the dense forests of the lowlands and highlands.
Numbers have plummeted in their native Sumatra due to habitat loss and deforestation caused by increased logging and the agriculture – especially from palm oil plantations. Illegal hunting is also a problem as these animals are revered for their skins and seen as a threat to livestock.
