Panthera Tigris is the scientific name for the Tiger. Over the last 100 years, the Tiger population has been reduced to near extinction through hunting and deforestation. There is estimated to be fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers holding on for survival in the remaining patches of forest on the island of Sumatra.
This places their IUCN status: CR - Critically Endangered.
Accelerating deforestation and rampant poaching mean this noble creature could end up extinct like its Javan and Balinese counterparts.
To a tiger, the forest is life. It provides trees for shade, rivers for drinking water, and ideal hunting grounds for ambushing prey. One of the best ways to protect forests so that tigers and other wildlife thrive is to buy products that have the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) label.
Amaris has pledged to do our part by donating 15% of every Tigris ring sold towards the WWF conservation. So far Amaris Australia has adopted Six Tigers and is currently donating to save one of the last great stands of rain forest in Thirty Hills, or Bukit Tigapuluh, in Central Sumatra. Amaris is also further supporting by only using packaging products that have the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label. For more information on how to get involved click here.
On Black Friday and Cyber Monday from the 25th - 28th November, Amaris donated 10% of all sales over the weekend towards the Karmagawa, SaveTheReef charity project.
