With less than 400 critically endangered Sumatran tigers left in the wild, Indonesian officials have proposed a conservation plan which would allow wealthy citizens to have tigers as pets for a fee,- about $107,000 per pair.

The solution is easy, for a donation of $100,000, you get to know you have sponsored a pair of tigers, and feel like you are special.

How to do, if your country is found a steady decline in tiger population and very little money to invest in conservation projects? In Indonesia, the ideal solution appeared to be to "rent" the tigers to those who are willing to pay more.

An idea, which needless to say, do not make them very happy animal welfare organizations, but will yield to the coffers of the Indonesian state more than 100 thousand dollars for every tiger rented. The selection criteria are quite strict, are, in fact, that the potential owner has a very spacious and allow visits by veterinarians and employees of the Ministry.

The population of Sumatran tigers is estimated at 400 units, a number expected to fall unfortunately also because of illegal hunting and deforestation.
This is reason why the Indonesian Governement, do the adoption plan / rent it seemed to government officials an extreme but necessary to save the few remaining tigers.

Staying technically property of the Indonesian state, tigers can be returned to the same state if the new owners do not like their company more.

I am very skeptical of the honest politicians in very poor nations, if they have dollar's incoming the biggest part will end up in their pockets and the only losers in all this will be only the poor Sumatran tigers

done. Those "officials" need to have their heads examined. No pets are meant to be rented out to help the economy. Come up with a better plan. They are living creatures-not toys for the rich.
