We are urging countries with tiger farms to adopt urgent action to end tiger breeding for commercial purposes phase out tiger farms.
The global wild tiger population is now estimated to be less than 4,000. These last remaining wild tigers each threatened by trade for nearly all of their body parts - from skins and bones to teeth and claws, traded by criminals for huge profit.
If wild tiger populations are to be recovered and secured, the international community must provide support to end tiger farming and all trade in tiger parts and products from wild and captive tigers. We the undersigned, including those with technical expertise in managing captive tigers, stand ready to provide assistance to achieve the goals of Zero Demand for tiger parts and products and Zero Poaching of tigers.
