Time to call a halt to tiger farming

  • by: Kelly Rogers
  • target: CITES Secretary General John E. Scanlon

The London-based Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) is submitting both calls to the 62nd meeting of the Standing Committee of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), in Geneva, Switzerland from July 23-27. Under CITES regulations, operations to breed tigers and other Asian big cats are restricted to the purposes of conservation; CITES specifically states ‘tigers should not be bred for trade in their parts and derivatives'.
