Help secure a total ban on all trade in tiger parts from captive and wild tigers

This petition had 4,528 supporters


We are deeply concerned about the ongoing legal trade in China of tiger skins obtained from captive tigers bred in nefarious tiger ‘farms’. With as few as 3,000 tigers remaining in the wild, it is shocking that the largest end-destination market of tiger parts and products, i.e., China, continues to promote such trade.

Investigations conducted by the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), a UK-based NGO, found that China issues permits for captive tiger skins to be traded as rugs for luxury home décor. Such trade stimulates demand for tiger products, undermines enforcement efforts to end tiger trade and poses a serious threat to tigers in the wild. 

We respectfully request that you raise this issue during President Xi Jinping’s upcoming visit to the UK and urge him to announce a total ban on all trade in tiger parts from captive or wild tigers, to end tiger farming and destroy stockpiles tiger parts and products.
