Tiger Day starts an Avaaz petition to close Chinese tiger farms

“No tiger cub deserves to be born into a life of suffering and eventually be killed for its fur, and other parts used for “chinese magic” or bogus potions.

“China is allowing the sale of captive-bred tiger skins and body parts. They are denying a UN agreement which calls for such trade to be banned. The conditions in these farms are horrible!Images appeared on in our mailbox showing deceased tigers from these camps. Our staff was shocked but decided to publish them. Warning, these images are not for the weak-hearted.

“Something needs to be done! There are just 3200 wild tigers living in the wild and over 5000 held captive in these tiger farms! These creatures deserve a worthy life and we want to give it to them. If we move as one, we can make a change! ”

GR:  During the past century we lost 97% of all wild tigers. Habitat loss and hunting eliminated 97,000 of the 100,000 tigers we had a century ago.  At this rate, all tigers living in the wild will be extinct in 10 years! Please sign the petition.

  1. How are these beautiful animals not protected by law? It’s a disgrace that more captive tiger live in the US (Texas) than there are in the wild.

  2. Public support and funding has not been strong enough. There are numerous organizations concerned with tiger protection. I do not know which ones are achieving success. Please let me know if you reach a conclusion about them. Everything we can do will help.
