Malaysia has less than 150 Malayan tigers roaming in the wild. In a bid to protect the national icon, the National Tiger Conservation Task Force agrees to a strategic plan.

Camera traps set up by WWF-Malaysia have captured images of a female Malayan tiger and three cubs, signalling a message of hope for the critically endangered population.
