Put a Halt to the Tiger Trade

Target: Government representatives attending the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)

Goal: End the trade of tiger parts worldwide

Recently, TRAFFIC—an animal trade monitoring group—released a report at the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). The report accounts the recovering of more than 1,400 tiger parts (arms, legs, teeth, skulls, claws) from around the world. Tigers are a highly endangered species, making this news quite alarming for those in the environmental community. The perpetuation of the tiger trade is something that needs to be confronted immediately.

Much like the ivory trade, the tiger trade is based around the killing and dismantling of the creature for the sake of creating valuable pieces of personal ornamentation: another example of human vanity and greed invading and corrupting nature. At the CITES environmental convention in Thailand, governments will soon discuss how to stem the tide of the animal trade industry, and hopefully, significantly cripple it. The subject of the tiger trade will undoubtedly take a central role in this discussion. Hopefully, these government leaders can move past empty bureaucratic promises, and pass legislation that will make a solid impact on the tiger trade. This legislation needs to include a variety of strict anti-trafficking laws coupled with efficient international policing efforts.

This malicious practice needs to be curtailed. Sign below to let the government leaders who are meeting in Thailand know that we are behind them, and that they need to act swiftly and intelligently in order to secure the safety of tigers worldwide.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Members of CITES,

The documentation recently displayed by TRAFFIC exemplifies the inordinate number of cases regarding the tiger trade, and is something that provokes public attention.

We realize that the upcoming convention will discuss this specific subject, and want to ensure that you know that we are behind you. But please do not make the mistake of merely giving empty promises, or creating legislation for the sake of looking good to the public. Strict regulations and international policing efforts need to be passed in order to secure the safety of tigers worldwide.

This endangered species is quickly approaching extinction. The leaders attending this convention have the obligation to fix this problem and end the tiger trade for good.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
