The Sumatran tiger cubs have been caught on WWF's motion-triggered video cameras playing with a large dry leaf and frolicking in the Sumatran rainforests. WWF released the video footage, along with a Google Earth tour by David Tryse showing the threats to the tigers' habitat.

"According to WWF estimate only 400 Sumatran tigers remain today. 12 of these tigers and two mothers with cubs were recorded in WWF's camera traps over a period of 2 months." Along with elephants, rhinos and orangutans, these tigers live in lowland rainforests of Sumatra called Bukit Tigapuluh that is presently being logged by Asia Pacific Resources International Limited (APRIL) and Asia Pulp and Paper (APP).
