    STOP THE TIGER TRADE!



    JOIN THE PETITION TO STOP THE TIGER TRADE

    Dear supporter,

    We urgently need your help to raise awareness and vital funds for tiger conservation. With your support our TigerTime campaign is making great progress but, on occasion, we also have to hold governments to account to make sure they honour their commitments to the wild tiger.

    One year on from the International Tiger Conservation Forum in St Petersburg, we are launching an impassioned petition calling on the Premier of China, Wen Jiabao, to end the trade in tiger and big cat skins from so called ‘tiger farms’ in his country. China is still allowing the trade in tiger skins of so-called “legal origin”, including ‘farmed tigers’. But, a lack of transparency over how authorities determine the legality of the skins coupled with insufficient enforcement and growing corruption is creating a smokescreen for the illegal trade in tiger products in China.

    David Shepherd said, ‘Tiger farms are barbaric. The sight of hundreds of tigers in small cages being bred just for their parts is repulsive. The Premier of China is on the record as saying he is committed to saving the wild tiger. His government is simply not living up to this commitment. Allowing a so called ‘licensed trade’ in skins from tiger farms is a disaster for two reasons. First, it keeps up the scandalous demand for tiger parts by pandering to the market. Second, corruption and this ‘legal’ trade makes it almost impossible for enforcement agencies to police the situation.

    ‘If Wen Jiabao means what he says about saving tigers, he can clear this up by setting a zero tolerance and end all trade, in all parts, from all sources policy now.’

    We have to stop this trade.

    Please sign the petition at www.bantigertrade.com and also www.tigertime.info, both are for different causes.

    Many thanks for your help,

    Anthony.

    Please watch this, but not if you are squeamish. Made a few years ago, numbers in the wild have declined dramatically since then.






    Thank you,

    Anthony

    A little good news in the email I received today.

    Dear "Ban the Tiger Trade" Supporter

    The Chinese Government has banned an auction of 400 bottles of tiger wine (made from crushed tiger bones) that was planned to take place this weekend in China.

    Just by being part of TigerTime, or by being a signatory to our Ban The Tiger Trade Petition at www.bantigertrade.com , you helped achieve this small but important victory in the overall campaign to see ALL trade in ANY tiger or Asian big cat body parts from ANY source banned – with a Zero Tolerance Approach.

    Hundreds and hundreds of our supporters answered our ‘call to action’ and emailed the Chinese Government. As a result, the Chinese Government were left in no doubt about the strength of feeling on this subject.

    This is proof that our campaign is making a difference. The more people that come together on this vital issue, the greater our chance of success.

    Please pass this good news onto your friends and contacts by email, twitter and facebook urging them to signup at www.bantigertrade.com if they haven’t already done so.

    The trade in tiger body parts is a mortal threat to the survival of the wild tiger. We need it stopped.

    Our other pressing need is to raise the funds needed to stop the poaching of wild tigers. If you’d like to help, why not consider buying some of your Christmas gifts from our excellent on line TigerTime Shop (see picture of some of the TigerTime products). It’s also possible to ‘adopt a tiger’ as a gift idea. As ever, donations are always welcome by clicking here

    Its really down to you why we are going to make a difference in the fight to save the tiger from extinction.


    Kind regards
