Petitioning President Barack Obama

Protect tigers: Keep them out of American backyards


Shockingly, there are about 5,000 captive tigers in the US—many more than in the wild. Almost all of the captive tigers are owned privately as pets—not by zoos or accredited institutions. Because there isn't a system to keep track of the tigers, both the American public and the tigers are at risk. Isn't it time we took a stand?

We need your help to remind President Obama that our government's inaction to close loopholes on captive tigers leaves wild tigers—and people—vulnerable.
