Malaysian Conservation Alliance for Tiger (MYCAT) is the only tiger conservation project where citizen conservationists from around the world can participate directly in field conservation efforts for tigers through Citizen Action for Tiger (CAT) Walks. CAT Walks protect tigers, bears, elephant, and other amazing Malaysian wildlife through immersive anti-poaching patrols, camera trapping, replanting trees in vital wildlife corridors in the oldest rainforest in the world.
