Malaysia: MYCAT

From The Weekend, 11:30 am on 18 January 2015

Organisations trying to save Malaysia's wildlife are reporting a downturn in international volunteers signing up because of the recent airplane tragedies in the region. That's making a difficult task near impossible. Wildlife poaching in Malaysia is largely behind the near extinction of the Malayan tiger, along with habitat destruction. The organisation MYCAT is making a difference by having volunteers walking through poaching hotspots in the jungle, searching for snares or signs of poachers.
