A Plea From WWF - Malaysia

The Malaysian peninsula is home to some of the world's most amazing wildlife, including Sumatran rhinos, Malayan tigers and Asian elephants.

But these and many other species in the region are under increasing threat due to poaching and the demand for their body parts in the illegal wildlife trade.

Take action now and help protect wildlife in Malaysia.

Wildlife in Malaysia is currently protected by the Protection of Wild Life Act 1972, which is severely outdated and riddled with loopholes. As a result many species continue to be poached and illegally traded at alarming rates, while wildlife offenders often escape arrest and prosecution.

Please sign our petition and urge the Malaysian government to strengthen the wildlife law.

We will present your name, as part of the petition, to the Malaysian government in August 2009.

Thank you for your support,

Dato' Dr. Dionysius Sharma
Executive Director and CEO
