"TRUE STORY about ‘SECRET’ area Wilds Sumatran Tigers! (Panthera tigris sumatrae)" - Sumatran Tiger Conservation Breeding Center. My honored and deep respected to be here who is I am in personally, who is the lucky person visiting on this 'secret' areas with strict rules on this area.
The other think, we should be to know if the wilds life is just only survival ( The have one rules "Killing or Killed" ! and the opinion is talk about how is the habitat will be survival to life. Only three things to sustain it's existence and those are a habitat, prey and water. Just our remind about 3 (three) service excellence the Wilds Llife :
1. comfortable life with large cage
2. always be enough food
3. rewards care
The Conservation Breeding Center is a 'secret' place at Taman Safari, Cisarua-Bogor, Indonesia that was designed not for public visitor and usually protected areas visitors.
The usually is just among the visiting officials, researcher or education programs and actually only certain people are allowed to see the captive Sumatran tiger, because it has a very high conservation value. The other reason this area provide to Sumatran Tigers comfortable living after they have many badness histories, the tiger is depressed and would not eat. Also, we should be efforts to reduce conflicts between tigers and humans and rehabilitating Sumatran Tigers and reintroducing them to their natural habitat. Conservation and Breeding Programs at the National Zoo at Taman Safari Cisarua-Bogor, Indonesia. So many interesting me!
Conservation and Adminitrative Geography area at Taman Safari, at Cisarua-Bogor,Indonesia:
The location of TSI (Taman Safari Indonesia) Cisarua-Bogor is located in the Village Cibeureum, Cisarua district, Bogor Regency, West Java Province. The location relative to other regions around it are: eastward Citeko adjacent to the Village, north bordering Cisarua Village, West Village monument adjacent to the South and the southern borders of Protected Areas-Pangrango Gede National Park (TNGP). Geographically, the location of TSI Cisarua, Bogor is located at 06o 42 '10 "- 06o 43' 25" - south latitude (LS "Lintang Selatan") and 106o56'40 "- 106o57'40" Eastern Longitude (BT "Bujur Timur"), at an altitude of 1000-1550 meters above sea level (asl or dpl "diatas permukaan laut")
In 2006 the Indonesia Forestry Service, the Natural Resources and Conservational Agency (BKSDA) and the Sumatran Tiger Conservation Program sat down with commercial concession holders and Asia Pulp & Paper and set the foundations for the Senepis Buluhala Tiger Sanctuary, an area that covered 106,000 hectares in Riau by 2008. These organizations formed The Tiger Conservation Working Group with other interested parties and the project is recognised as a pioneering initiative. Current studies include the identifying of feeding behavior of tigers to develop strategies that will help protect both tigers and human settlements.
In 2007, the Indonesian Forestry Ministry and Safari Park established cooperation with the Australia Zoo for the conservation of Sumatran Tigers and other endangered species. The cooperation agreement was marked by the signing of a Letter of Intent on 'Sumatran Tiger and other Endangered Species Conservation Program and the Establishment of a Sister Zoo Relationship between Taman Safari and Australia Zoo' at the Indonesian Forestry Ministry office on July 31, 2007. The program includes conserving Sumatran Tigers and other endangered species in the wild, efforts to reduce conflicts between tigers and humans and rehabilitating Sumatran Tigers and reintroducing them to their natural habitat.
The ‘SUMATRAN TIGER’ (Panthera Tigris Sumatrae) CONSERVATION BREEDING CENTRE at TSI (Taman Safari Indonesia) Cisarua-Bogor, Indonesia.
TSI's Sumatran tigers are very well cared for. For the Sumatran tiger breeding TSI worked with approximately 20 zoos in the world, so the existence of appropriate standards and IUCN Waza. Establishment of Sumatran Tiger Breeding Center was founded in 1992; TSI is an active player in a collaborative international network of enlightened zoological institutions that seek to translate the educational and scientific merits of modern zoos into direct benefits for wild animals, and in particular, endangered species. TSI and their partners care for and breed healthy Sumatran tigers as part of a global species survival plan that is overseen by the World Conservation Union's (IUCN) Conservation Breeding Specialist Group (CBSG). These zoo animals may one-day offer one of the most valuable conservation solutions, helping us ensure the long-term survival of the wild Sumatran tiger. Though we are still a long way from knowing precisely how this will be done, one of the options before us is the interbreeding of captive and wild populations, using methods such as artificial insemination and *in vitro fertilization (in vitro fertlization: Outside the living body or in an artificial environment. With in vitro fertilization, an ovum is fertilized by a sperm in an artificial setting; the resulting embryo is implanted in the uterus for gestation).
The captive animals would presumably come from healthy, well-managed breeding stock with a minimum inbreeding coefficient; animals that carry as many of the genes that typify the Sumatran subspecies. This conceptual method has never been tested but is potentially an extremely valuable "Genetic Insurance Policy".
TSI is an active partner in numerous endangered wildlife conservation initiatives, such as the breeding of Sumatran rhinos, Komodo dragons, Javan hawk eagles, orangutans, Bali starlings and several other Indonesian endangered species. TSI's extensive facilities are located in a beautiful, lush mountain setting an hour and a half south of Jakarta, where one can observe over two thousand animals representing more than three hundred species. The center is open to the public, and comfortable, modern accommodation is close by. We encourage everyone who has the opportunity to travel to Indonesia to visit Taman Safari and the Sumatran Tiger Conservation Breeding Center. As an added bonus, it is one of the best places in the world to photograph tigers in a dramatic jungle setting. Several leading wildlife photographers and television documentary filmmakers, such as the BBC and Discovery Channel, have photographed and filmed tigers here. Many of the photos in this site were also taken there. If you are fortunate enough to visit TSI and to see a litter of rare Sumatran tigers, babies tigers and orangutans cubs up-close, touch them on Educated Tour! There are a truly enriching experience.
For its success in breeding of various kinds of rare animals and activities, TSI acquire Awards National Kalpataru, Star Service of the Government of Indonesia Awards of Taman Safari Indonesia as and this award is the highest award of Indonesian tourism organized by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism Republic of Indonesia, which aims to appreciate and celebrate the success and service excellence in every sector of Indonesia's tourism industry :

and has the vision and mission :
Preserving, developing and utilizing wildlife park as the last bastion rescue wildlife and endangered species endemic to Indonesia over the world.
- Takes the viewer to better understand the diversity of biological phenomena.
- Provides a way to obtain information wildlife and their habitats through science and technology.
- Provide an understanding of the animals demonstrated that it is a world heritage must be preserved.
Wildlife park that implement the above vision and mission, then park wildlife conservation the world has followed the strategy agreed by the WZO (World Zoo Organization) and CBSG (Conservation Breeding Specialist Group of IUCN) in 1995 which requires that wildlife park seeks to:
- Increasing public awareness about conservation changes;
- Support and facilitate increased scientific efforts that benefit conservation;
- Conservation of populations of endangered species and their habitats.
