    Default Endangered Sumatran tiger cubs investigate WWF's camera in Indonesia

    A video camera in the jungles of Indonesia has captured the first known footage of Sumatran tiger cubs in the wild, boosting efforts to conserve the endangered species, an environmental group said Thursday.
    The video shot in October on the island of Sumatra shows two year-old cubs and their mother approaching and sniffing the camera before moving on.
    The WWF's tiger research team set up four video camera traps along known tiger routes that allow the animals to move between two protected areas in central Sumatra, the Rimbang Baling Wildlife Reserve and Bukit Tigapuluh National Park.
    Ian Kosasih, WWF-Indonesia's forest program director, said the images showed the need to turn the corridor into a protected area and for paper and palm oil companies in the area to shield what he called high-value forest under their control.

    Such beautiful, distinct, sharp markings on those animals. They are really something.
