A petition from the campaign to

Stop the Tiger Trade

Sign the Petition to

Chinese Government

Although China has joined CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) and has agreed to ban tiger poaching, illegal poaching and trading of tiger parts is still prevalent in China. This is having a critical impact on the tiger populations throughout the world.

We demand that the Chinese government enforce the laws put in place by CITES and commit to taking the following steps to enforce the ban on products made from tiger parts.

1) Establish increased anti-poaching patrols in tiger habitats

2) Commitment to crack down on offenders

3) Training of law enforcement agents to control illegal trade

4) Public awareness campaigns to educate consumers about the impacts on tiger populations

5) More effective boarder controls

China joined CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) on 4/8/1981 and has agreed to the ban on tiger products. However, poaching and illegal trade continue due to limited enforcement and the public's misinformation about the impact of medicines produced using tiger parts. Tigers are still illegally hunted for the use of their body parts in traditional Asian medicines (TAM). The trade of skins, teen, claws, bones, and other body parts is having a critical impact on tiger populations throughout the world. Illegal trade in tiger body parts and products, driven by the Chinese demand, continues to threaten the remaining populations of tigers worldwide, which declined from over 100,000 a century ago to as few as 3000 left in the wild.

Help save the remaining tigers by signing the petition today.
