Snags in wildlife protection

THE top five most endangered wildlife in Malaysia are the Malayan tiger (estimated 150 left), Malayan sun bear (estimated 1,000 left), Malayan tapir (estimated 1,500 left), Bornean pygmy elephant (estimated 1,500 left), and orang utan (estimated 105,000 left).

Malaysia’s commitment to protecting biodiversity, particularly wildlife, can be seen through international conventions such as the 1973 Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), and the Convention on Biological Diversity 1992.
