The Malayan tiger is the national animal of Malaysia. Two tigers are depicted as supporters in the coat of arms of Malaysia, coat of arms of Johor and in the coat of arms of Singapore.
Why is the Malayan tiger important?
As an apex predator, Malayan tigers keep populations of prey species in check, which in turn maintains the balance in the ecosystem. This is not only important for wildlife, but for people too. Their habitat is natural forest, which we as humans rely on.
