Stand Up and Roar for Sumatran Tigers

Help save Indonesian Forests

Click here to roar for the Sumatran Tiger

by Nick Young, GREENPEACE

Did you know there are as few as 400 Sumatran tigers left in Indonesia’s forests? 

Why? Because the forests these tigers call home are being destroyed to produce the palm oil used in household brands across the world, including New Zealand.

The products you love should be extinction free and tiger friendly. 

Add your voice to the call for change - sign our Tiger Manifesto today.

Palm oil is found in a huge range of products, from breakfast cereal to shampoo, many of which you probably use everyday. Crucially though, it doesn’t have to be produced by destroying forests.

You have a right to know if the products you use are linked to tiger extinction. If you want the brands you love to step up and be extinction free, please sign the Tiger Manifesto.

We’re already making a difference. We had a major breakthrough in December when Wilmar, the world’s biggest palm oil trader, committed to a No Deforestation policy. This came following months of pressure from Greenpeace supporters. While we have to make sure Wilmar follows through with this commitment on the ground, we also need to push other companies to follow their lead.

At home, New Zealanders up and down the country are taking a stand against risky deep sea oil to protect our beautiful environment, unique wildlife and fragile global climate. 

These are the same reasons why we need to put a stop to this destructive production of palm oil. Stand up and roar for the protection of the Sumatran tiger’s last remaining space on earth.

Together we will defend these spectacular creatures by calling on the brands you love to commit to only buying forest-friendly palm oil.

Nick and the whole crew at Greenpeace.
