The Javan Tiger was a subspecies of tiger found only on the Indonesian island of Java, until it died out as recently as the 1980s.

Tigers of the World: The tiger is undoubtedly the world's favourite animal, but many of us are probably not aware of the fact that the species is distributed into 9 sub-species across South and South-East Asia and the Russian Far-East (I myself could never recall the 9 names each time someone asked me what the races were, and so I decided to draw this poster!). These are the Siberian, Caspian, South China, Bengal, Indochinese, Malayan, Sumatran, Javan and Balinese Tigers...

The Sumatran tiger, numbering fewer than 400 individuals in the wild, is found exclusively on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the last stronghold for tigers in Indonesia. Accelerating deforestation and rampant poaching across the Sumatran tiger's range mean that unless authorities enforce the law, this subspecies will soon follow the fate of its extinct Javan and Balinese relatives.
