Wealthy to Adopt Rare Sumatran Tigers in Indonesia

Pursuitist Luxury Best Luxury Blog

With only 400 Sumatran tigers alive today, the Indonesian government is launching a program to get wealthy individuals adopt these rare specimens. A bit of an odd campaign, but if it helps, good.

The Indonesian government is launching a programme to let the rich adopt extremely rare Sumatran Tigers. For a 1 billion rupiah ($107,000) deposit they will get the chance to become the proprietor of one unique pet. Only 400 of the animals are alive today. Deforestation and hunting have led to a severe cull in their numbers so the government came up with this unique proposal to protect them. Darori, the ministry’s Director General of Forest Protection and Nature Conservation said: “There are many orders from rich people who want them, who feel if they own a tiger they are a big shot. We have to take concrete steps to protect these animals.” – From Luxury Insider
