WWF – Update – Remarkable Images of Big Cats Urge Forest Protection.

Camera traps captured images of 5 of the 7 big cat species that can be found in Sumatra (Indonesian island). Four of the five species are threatened by extinction. A three-month survey in early 2011 produced 404 images of the big cats. The area in which the cats can be found is under threat of deforestation due to logging for pulp and paper.
