A beautiful orange and white coat with black stripes which help camouflage it as it moves through the forest.
There are fewer than 400 of these critically endangered tigers left in the wild making them one of the rarest sub-species of tiger.
Large mammals like wild pigs, tapir and deer are favourites but they will also eat smaller mammals such as rabbits or snakes.
This sub-species of tiger can only be found in the wild in the tropical forests of the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
Deforestation means that the dense forest tigers need to survive is shrinking. They are also hunted by poachers who want to sell their parts on the black market.
The Sumatran tiger is classified as critically endangered. Hopefully we can save it from extinction, unlike the Bali, Caspian and Javan tigers which all became extinct in the last 80 years.

Scott’s Antarctic expeditions. Learn about this early Antarctic explorer
More than 99% of the Antarctic landmass is permanently covered in ice. Sea ice surrounding the continent grows in the winter to 20 million square kilometres, which is nearly twice the area of Europe!
Until fairly recently (only 100 years ago) we knew very little about this icy world.
Captain Scott was an officer in the British Navy who had a taste for adventure.
He led two expeditions to Antarctica to find out more about the continent.
He hoped that his expedition would be the first to reach the South Pole. But when they arrived, they found a Norwegian group had reached the pole five weeks earlier.
During the long journey back from the South Pole in March 1912, Scott’s South Pole party were trapped by terrible snowstorms and all eventually died.
Although it ended tragically, Scott’s expedition made lots of important discoveries about the Antarctic environment and the animals that live there.
His son Sir Peter Scott was determined to build on his father’s work by finding out more about wildlife across the world and working to protect it.
To achieve this he helped to set up WWF. He even designed our famous panda logo!
Today, WWF is still working to protect the Antarctic.

They are the most important food source for many marine mammals and sea birds including the minke whale and the macaroni penguin.
The average krill is about two inches long but they have strength in numbers – there are around 500 million tonnes of Antarctic Krill in the Southern Ocean! However, in some parts of the Southern Ocean krill numbers have dropped due to reduced sea ice cover.
Krill feed on tiny single-celled plants called phytoplankton.
Krill can be found in oceans around the world.
The loss of sea ice means a loss of ice algae – a vital source of food for krill.
‘Krill’ is Norwegian for whale food.

The Coral Triangle is a huge underwater area that spreads across southeast Asia and the Pacific.
This area is very rich in coral with vast reefs spreading across the ocean floor.
These beautiful coral reefs provide perfect places to live and breed for thousands of species.
Six different species of turtle live here.
And so do dolphins…
and lots of fish.
But this area, which is home to so many animals, is under threat.
Humans have been fishing in the area for thousands of years but the industrial fishing techniques which are now used mean we are taking too many fish from the seas and damage reefs.
The area is also being damaged by climate change and tourism which does not respect the natural wonders found in the area.
To help protect this unique area WWF are working with partners to reduce these threats. We have also set up Coral Triangle Day, an event which will help to educate people on the threats facing the Coral Triangle and teach them how to keep it safe.
The first Coral Triangle Day took place this year and was a great success! It was celebrated in 7 countries around the Coral Triangle.
Some of the great activities which took place on the day were:

Their torpedo shape; this super-streamlined shape means that the bluefin tuna can swim very fast, reaching speeds of up to 25 m/h!
Bluefin tuna are normally around 3 metres long but large adults can grow to as long as 4 metres. They can weigh up to 650kg, as much as a caravan!
Tuna will eat most things but their diet mainly consists of smaller fish, squid, crustaceans and eels. They can dive up to 1,000 metres to find food!
Bluefin tuna live in the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. However, they travel long distances for food.
Bluefin tuna are classed as endangered. Populations have declined by 85% of their original size since being fished on an industrial scale.
Overfishing. Bluefin tuna is some of the most expensive fish in the world which means that people continue to overfish it.
Atlantic bluefin tuna can dive down to depths of 1,000 metres!
