EIA (Environmental Investigation Agency) believes that at least one tiger is killed daily for its use in traditional Chinese medicine. Despite that China has recently lifted the ban on tiger based medicines if the tigers are in captivity. These medicines have no proven medical benefits. Our goal is to reintroduce the ban again. The reason being that poaching, habitat loss and fragmentation have reduced the global population of tigers from over 100,000 in the 1900′s to less than 4,000 in the 1970′s. Today, four of the remaining subspecies of tigers are considered endangered by the IUCN, while two of the subspecies are considered “critically” endangered and now the lifted ban on Chinese medicines will just encourage people to poach more tigers! Please sign this petition and tell others to assign it to.
