MAE WONG NATIONAL PARK :: THAILAND
Tigers in Thailand feast on prey ranging from sambar deer to wild pigs to guar and banteng (wild bison and cattle, respectively). And while the country’s tiger population has remained stable, WWF-Thailand’s Tiger Recovery team wanted to accelerate the pace of tiger population growth. They homed in on sambar deer as the key prey species to focus on, since scientists believe the deer are the “right match” for the rare carnivores—and so can support an uptick in tiger numbers.
