On Borrowed Time

‘On Borrowed Time’, launched in conjunction with World Tiger Day 2011, trains a spotlight on the poaching crisis in Belum-Temengor, a forest complex in northern Peninsular Malaysia, and calls for the problem to be put on the national agenda. The forests here are of critical importance for the conservation of Tigers and other endangered species, yet research and monitoring by WWF-Malaysia and TRAFFIC Southeast Asia since 2008 have documented decimation of the wildlife by relentless illegal hunting, with little standing in poachers’ way.
