A Malayan tiger conservation project has been shortlisted to receive funding from the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA), and you have the chance to help this cause!
Called “Rewilding Yu: Reconnecting People with Nature to Save Tigers,” the project aims to protect Malayan wild tigers by funding local and indigenous community rangers and planting over 5,000 trees along the Yu River Corridor in Peninsular Malaysia, among other efforts.
With the funding program, the project will receive €60,000, which they can use for their various initiatives.

Helmed by the Malaysian Conservation Alliance for Tigers (MYCAT), the project is the only Asian entry that was shortlisted. Other projects lined up for funding are Colombia’s “Restoring and Conserving Ecosystems on the Colombian Caribbean Coast,” Kenya’s “Restoring the Mountain Bongo Habitat,” and Uganda’s “Trails and Trees for Recovery of Mount Kadam,” among others.
Since its foundation in 2006, the EOCA has been supporting and funding numerous conservation, protection, and regeneration projects around the world.
