Ban the Tiger Trade: One Quick Petition
Please click on and sign:
The Premier of China, Wen Jiabao has publicly stated that he is committed to saving the wild tiger. (Read his comment – Nov 2010.) However, his government is allowing trade in tiger skins from tiger farms and skins taken before poaching was outlawed. This trade is acting as a smokescreen for skins taken by killing wild tigers. If China does not stop this trade, the wild tiger is doomed. See how they obtain the tigers.
I appeal to Premier Wen Jiabao to send a clear message to his government, calling for an end to all tiger trade within China. This is to include a call for a zero tolerance policy applied to all trade of all parts and derivatives of tiger and other protected Asian big cats, from all sources.
