Hello, supporters of Malayan tigers. CAT Walks 2019 are open for registration!
26-27 Jan, 16-17 Feb, 13-14 Apr
What is CAT Walk?
CAT stands for Citizen Action for Tigers. Since 2010, MYCAT initiated the CAT Walk programme intended to deter poaching and enhance the protection in the Sungai Yu Tiger Corridor which is a narrow stretch of forest that borders Taman Negara National Parkcorridor. The CAT Walk is the only citizen action programme in Malaysia (and even in the world!) that allows concerned citizens who appreciate nature to be directly involved in the protection of wild Malayan tigers.
Where is the Sungai Yu Tiger Corridor?
The Sungai Yu Tiger Corridor is the most critical ecological corridor in Peninsular Malaysia and a priority area for tiger conservation. Located in Kuala Lipis district, Pahang, this corridor is the only natural link between the two largest tiger landscapes in Malaysia, Taman Negara and the Main Range. Bisected by a highway, this area has become highly accessible and extremely vulnerable to poaching activity.
How will a CAT Walk volunteer help?
As a CAT Walk volunteer, you will patrol the poaching hotspot areas with an experienced and certified MYCAT leader. For instance, you will assist us to look for signs of illegal activity, snares and traps, as well as signs of animals, like animal tracks. All relevant information on suspected illegal activity observed during the walk will be sent to MYCAT’s Wildlife Crime Hotline and MYCAT will relay the information to the authorities.
Join us in the fight to save the Malayan tiger by participating in a CAT Walk. You can contribute physically and financially to the continued survival of this critically endangered species.
*Payable via online banking (Malaysian banks only) and with a credit card.
Your reservation on a CAT Walk is confirmed once payment is made. Participation is on a first-come-first-served basis, and are limited to 10 people/trip. A CAT Walk will takes place with a minimum of 5 paid volunteers.
